We start with the missing link from the Robert Mann String Quartet Institute at the Manhattan School of Music recorded this past January. Last week’s show featured five of the six quartets coached by Juilliard Quartet founding violinist Robert Mann.
Next is a preview of Peter Kolkay’s upcoming Merkin Hall recital. Kolkay was the first bassoonist ever to win an Avery Fisher Career Grant and has been on the Young Artists Showcase previously as the first prize-winner in the Concert Artists Guild Competition.
Finally, a postscript of traditional Japanese folk songs from pianist Tanya Bannister’s Concert for Oshima.
