Bach Sonatas, A Chopin Nocturne, & Carmen Fantasie
A teenage flutist’s playful performance of Carmen Fantasie kicks off this week’s program. We also meet a young marimba player who’s a star member of one of the strongest marching bands in Texas, and a teenage pianist who performs the music of Chopin. Finally, we travel to one of Boston’s great churches to hear a young organist perform the music of J.S. Bach.
