Recorded live in WQXR's The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space, this week's episode features Israeli sisters Linor and Moran Katz on cello and clarinet respectively and Phyllis Chen with her original works for toy piano and bowls.
This hour also includes Phyllis Chen, one of the world’s leading proponents of the toy piano. The New York Times praised Chen’s “delightful quirkiness matched with interpretive sensitivity.” Chen performs on both conventional and toy pianos.
We also hear from sisters Linor and Moran Katz. Cellist Linor Katz is a member of the Young Musicians Unit of the Music Center in Jerusalem. Clarinetist Moran Katz recently graduated from Juilliard and has won numerous awards, including First Prize in the 2009 Freiburg International Clarinet Competition in Germany. The Katz sisters are accompanied by pianist Amy J. Yang.
