Violinist and Classroom mascot Rachel Barton Pine is back to teach all about the violin concertos of Czech composer Antonin Dvorak and Soviet-Armenian Aram Khachaturian. Learn about their lives and music! Get lost with Dvorak in NYC! Hear about Khachaturian becoming a new father! Find out who threw shade at Dvorak and mucked up his concerto composing process, and how Khachaturian wrote his concerto in a blissed-out creative flurry. Also, learn about what makes “folk music” folksy and other music…not.
Music in this episode is all from Rachel’s new album, Dvorak and Khachaturian Violin Concertos.
Special thanks to…you! Don’t miss the special “Thank You” song (Folk Edition) at the end of this episode.
