Listen to the Podcast

Pianists Luke Magee and Elio Gaviria, students from the Merit School of Music in Chicago, perform “It’s Lovely Here” by Sergei Rachmaninoff and arranged by Victor Babin.


The young artists on this week’s show bring a range of musical choices to the program, including a Nocturne, a romance, and a piece that chronicles the African diaspora. We also meet a piano duo who act a bit like the odd couple, but perform with beautiful unity. Clarinetist Alex Laing co-hosts and performs Weber with Host Peter Dugan. Recorded in part at the Merit School in Chicago.
