This week on the Young Artist Showcase we look both ways.

We’re peering back in time to air a performance by three young string musicians—violinist Elizabeth Fayette, violist Amanda Verner and cellist Jeong-Hyoun Lee—who visited our studio in April. In this session, the young artists perform the C Major Trio of Jean Francaix.

Following this performance we turn our attention forward, to hear a preview of the next concert of the New York Youth Symphony. First, we hear the Symphony’s interpretation of Prokofiev’s Overture on Hebrew Themes, followed by Moussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain performed in its original edition.
