Great Conversations in Music

The Library of Congress  presents Great Conversations in Music, video interviews with distinguished musicians and composers.  Hosted by Eugene Istomin (1925-2003), one of the world’s most admired classical musicians, the series includes conversations with Mstislav Rostropovich, Yo-Yo Ma, Milton Babbitt, and others.  Topics include piano performance technique, modern contemporary music, the essence of the string quartet, the influence of master teachers, and lessons from the great virtuosos of the past. Thanks to Kirk Winters for this info.
