Pianist Lise de la Salle is committed to communicating emotion in as simple and direct a way as possible. Violinist Sarah Chang talks about her many memories in Aspen, where she has spent every summer of her life. Seraphic Fire brings two of the greatest Requiems of all time -- those by Faure and Mozart -- as the 2018 season of the Aspen Mussic festival comes to a close. Host Chris Mohr talks with all three on this week's Festival Showcase.

 

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.
