This morning, two pairs of hands belonging to Sivan Silver and Gil Garburg danced across piano keys in the KPBX studio. The Silver-Garburg Duo came to the station to discuss their return to the city to feature in the Spokane Symphony’s upcoming “Classics 4: Sibelius & Brahms” concert, performing an arrangement of Brahms' famous Opus 25— the lyrical and passionate First Piano Quartet— with four hands on one piano.

The performances will be at 8 PM on November 3rd and 3 PM on November 4th in the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
