Euphonium Fanatic, Rachmaninoff, & More / Show 434
We hear Clara Schumann performed on clarinet, a ferocious performance of Rachmaninoff, and a moving new cello work inspired by the pandemic. We also meet an 18-year-old who loves the euphonium so much that he’s determined to make it a household name and a young woman who is making an impression on the double bass world.
- Host: Peter Dugan
Peter Dugan’s position is sponsored by Susan and Gerald Slavet.
