About

From Fraser Performance Studio at WGBH in Boston, we launch our 10th Anniversary season with this week’s show. To celebrate, we welcome back a violinist who was on our show ten years ago, and who has since undertaken the task of “changing the world through music.” You’ll also meet a nine-year-old flutist from Virginia, who performs Cecile Chaminade’s Concertino and a uniquely talented 17-year-old countertenor from California, who sings a da capo aria by Handel.

Performers and Repertoire:

The Shapka Trio (clarinetist and Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Christopher Pell, 18, from Bronx, NY; cellist Madeline Fayette, 17, from Wading River, NY; and pianist and Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Dasha Bukhartseva, 16, from New York, NY) performs IV. Allegro from Trio for Clarinet, Cello and Piano in A minor, Op. 114 by Johannes Brahms

Flutist Emma Resmini, 9, from Fairfax Station, VA, performs Concertino by Cécile Chaminade

Violinist and 10th Anniversary Alumni Performer William Harvey performs Souvenir d’Amérique by Henri Vieuxtemps

Countertenor Caleb Barnes, 17, from Palmdale, CA, performs “Dove sei, amato bene?” by George Frideric Handel

New England Conservatory’s Youth Philharmonic Orchestra performs excerpts from Appalachian Spring by Aaron Copland. Conducted by Benjamin Zander.
