I was asked to do this podcast by the Candlelight Concert Society for their upcoming concert on October 9 at the Linehan Concert Hall at UMBC in Catonsville (top of the food chain according to my colleague Mark Malinowski) featuring violinist Kristof Barati and pianist Roman Rabinovich.

This should be a fabulous concert…Kristof Barati has recorded all the Beethoven Sonatas and they are excellent performances!

And so Mes Petits Amis…What do Rodolphe Kreutzer, George Bridgetower, Beethoven, Tolstoy, Janacek and a very sharp tuning fork all have in common?  The Answer is Beethoven’s amazing Kreutzer Sonata.  It’s a fabulous piece and an amazing story.  I thought it would be a nice way to say thank you to all the amazing WBJC listeners/members who helped us buy back these two days.

 

It is my delight to share it with you and I hope you enjoy the podcast, the concert on October 9 and also these two fabulous days of music you have bought back!
