So, WQXR is spending the whole month of September in praise of the violin. Of course I'm a violist at heart, but I thought this would be a great jumping-off point for this week's show. Thus! This week we'll study great Acts of Violins in the 20th and 21st Centuries.

Naturally, we'll be putting our very own Q2 spin on things. We'll hear works for violin and synthesizers, violin and tape, violin and guitarbot, electric violin, and of course violin solos, concertos and chamber music. I hope you can join us in celebrating this versatile instrument.

Here's hoping next year will bring a month's programming in praise of the viola! Just kidding... kind of.

PS: Don't forget to join me this Wednesday for a special Orpheus Project 440-flavored show, as part of our daylong marathon 24-Hour Project 440! Pick Favorites! Live Tweet with #project440! Be Heard!
