'Music And The Art Of Time Distortion' With Alon Goldstein

Eric T. Williams
The Kansas City Symphony
A standing ovation for pianist Alon Goldstein, Michael Stern and The Kansas City Symphony in Helzberg Hall, January 2019.

This week pianist Alon Goldstein joins hosts Michael Stern and Dan Margolies for a program of concertos by Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky and Avner Dorman — a world premiere — that starts with Alon sneaking on stage in darkness. We'll also learn about the personal connection between Alon and the Stern family via the America Israel Cultural Foundation.

An agreement with the Kansas City Symphony allows us to share audio for this program up to four weeks after the program's original air date. You can listen to currently available episodes here.
