Pianist Anton Nel On Hold


Pianist Anton Nel has been the most prolific performer around at the Aspen Music Festival and School, having been featured in seventeen concerts in eight weeks during the 2019 season. He's been a beloved fixture at the Festival, performing in solo recitals and alongside some of the world's greatest musicians.

Classical Music from Aspen host Chris Mohr checked in with Anton Nel to talk about Beethoven, whose music is being  featured over 100 times this summer on Aspen Public Radio. We also chat about his life in the  time of COVID-19, and what he is doing while waiting for the concert halls to reopen. Stay tuned to Aspen Public Radio; we will be  playing tracks from several of his albums this summer!

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.
