  Host Chris Mohr interviews pianist Vladimir Feltsman about his recitals honoring Russian composers inspired by Scriabin and Shostakovich whose works were suppressed by the Stalin regime and are relatively unknown in the West. 

He also talks with young violinist Simone Porter about her performance in Aspen of the Barber Concerto, and student conductor Matthew Forte.

Summer classical music host Chris Mohr is coming back to Aspen. He has loved classical music since he was twelve. “And I owe it all to radio,” Chris explains. “I grew up in a farm town east of Cleveland. Most of the music I heard growing up was Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, and other favorites of my parents.
