Show 019 | Boston, Massachusetts

Recorded: Sunday, May 14, 2000

This week, from New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall in Boston, we meet a wonderful 17-year-old soprano whose love for Mozart is only surpassed by her love for her lipstick-red VW Beetle. We hear a beautifully lyrical performance of Wayne Barlow's The Winter's Passed by a sensitive 17-year-old oboist from Pennsylvania, and special guest, composer/pianist John Bayless joins us for a raucous piano spectacular: eight hands at two pianos!
