Classical Detour

Audio will be available later today.

PT drifts off the beaten path of the standard repertoire with another "Classical Detour." This time around, it's three compelling performances by three separate pianists. Pedja Muzijevic plays a pair of Balkan Dances by Marko Tajcevic at the Freer Gallery in Washington, DC. Also at the Freer, Margaret Leng Tan plays the U.S. premiere of Eric Griswold's arrangement of a traditional Chinese tune, called "Little Sister Loves a Hard-working Man." And Jon Kimura Parker is at Piano Festival Northwest in Portland to play the evocative "China Gates," by John Adams.
