The "Aspen Music Virtual Festival" week began with Alan Fletcher's interview with James Ehnes and Andrew Armstrong, who will be playing Beethoven violin sonatas this Sunday.

Fletcher also chats with trumpeter Stuart Stephenson, who will be working with his students on livestream classes Wednesday and Thursday.

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.
