Interlochen Arts Academy Sophomore Jade Fung paid a musical visit to IPR's Studio A. She performed a pair of delightful contrasts, flowing powerfully through a Liszt Concert Etude before jazzing it up with a Fazil Say arrangement of a Paganini Caprice.
Pianist Michel Dalberto visited Interlochen and performed on Classical IPR live in Studio A. Dalberto tells of his choosing to become a musician in a non-musical family, about the musician's responsibility to act as judge, interpreting the composer's intention, sometimes using significant performances by other artists as a precedent....or not. He also performs music of Faure and Scriabin in this January 22, 2014 performance at IPR Studio A.
Interlochen arts Academy Students perform original music, creative writing along with works by Bach, Leo Brouwer, John Barnes Chance, Ravel and something sweet from "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory"!
