living it up in Chicago

Just played the first of two broadcast concerts for Chicago classical radio. WFMT has streaming live audio, for those who wish to listen--the next one will be with all of ICE (or those of us who'll be in town) on Monday evening, 8-10 CST, 9-11 EST. Lots of fun to be had. Tune in!

Today's show, with my great colleague Cory Smythe, was a one-of-a-kind opportunity to play some of the classic 20th-century two-piano music I've always wanted to do. Stravinsky, Ligeti, and Kurtag; great innovators who all used the two-piano combination slightly differently. It was a great experience today.
