Variety and virtuosity

KCS 211202.jpg
Violinist Augustin Hadelich and pianists Garrick Ohlsson and Behzod Abduraimov.

This week we'll hear virtuosic playing by three soloists performing five different works spanning four centuries. Augustin Hadelich, Garrick Ohlsson and Behzod Abduraimov tackle music by Haydn, Saint-Saëns, Copland, Gershwin and Thomas Adés.

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.
