Bach, Bassoon & John Williams / Show 435
A teen guitarist from Colorado plays a beautiful work by Bach, a cellist plays an emotional Elegy by John Williams, and a pianist performs a piece that draws from the worlds of classical and jazz. We’ll also hear from a teenage bassoonist who shares what it’s like living with neurodivergence and meet a young clarinetist who left his home in Peru to pursue music in the U.S.
