This week we tip our hats -- and our ears -- to the international nature of artist collaborations. We hear Korean violinist Soh-Yon Kim in concert with pianist Julia Gurvitch of Russia, now a faculty member of Tel Aviv University. Flutist Conor Nelson of Canada teams up with Korean pianist Shinae Kim -- both artists are now teachers in the United States. Finally, Chinese pianist Zijun Chen is heard with her teenage colleagues in the Manhattan School of Music Precollege Philharmonic, under the baton of American maestro Jonathan Strasser.

Re; Sonata for flute and piano by Carl Vine:

The composition was phenomenal and the performances , individually and as a duo unit, were phenomenal. Tremendously exciting music. Galvanizing. Thank you.
