High Notes: Alan Fletcher Talks With Musicians Performing The Brandenburg Concerti

Harpsichordist Jory Vinikour had to take over and conduct the Brandenburg concerto concerts at the Aspen Music Festival July 10 and 11 when Nicholas McGegan had to bow out.

He and  flugelhorn virtuoso Tamas Palfalvi discuss Bach's most beloved orchestral materpieces. 

Classical music reporter Chris Mohr 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. One day I turned on the local classical radio station. They were playing Vivaldi, and it was like the gates of heaven opened up to me!" Chris is also a composer, and is working on a 53-note-to-the-octave oratorio, "Melodies of the Shoreless Sea." This is his ninth summer working for Aspen Public Radio.
