Yes, you read it right. Beloved virtuoso violinist Augustin Hadelich, who closes out the Aspen Music Festival's Virtual Season on Sunday, August 23 at 3 p.m. is also a virtuoso pianist. So, with the miracle of technology, he will be accompanying himself, thereby guaranteeing no spread of the coronavirus.

In his conversation with Alan Fletcher, President of the Aspen Music Festival and School, he talks about this recital and more. Also on the program are opera conductor Patrick Summers and Flute Master Class teacher Demarre McGill.

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.
