From Tchaikovsky to Shostakovich to Trifonov: Russian music across three different centuries
Michael Stern and Dan Margolies will explore music by three Russian composers in live performances by the Kansas City Symphony. We'll hear Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5, Shostakovich's Symphony No. 2 and Daniil Trifonov's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in E-flat minor with the composer as soloist.
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.
