#131 Going Solo

There is perhaps no more intimate connection in music than when a composer writes a solo piece specifically for a gifted performer, crafting the piece for the player’s specific strengths and musical tastes.

We’ll talk with several performers about solos that have been written for them and feature performances of the pieces recorded live in our studio.
