Classical Music

Pianist Peggy Reich visited our KPBX studio to discuss her new program, "Music, the Speech of Angels," that she presents this week in various north Idaho locations. She illustrates her conversation with Jim Tevenan around the topic of musical aesthetics with selections from the music used in her programs.

Sheku Kanneh-Mason talks with Jim Tevenan about his new Decca album. Sheku is a young man with great technical prowess and an understanding of the music he plays much beyond his years.

If you drew up a Venn diagram for musical genres, the classical and hip hop categories probably would not overlap, or at least not much. But a duo that calls itself Black Violin is merging those two types of music and adding other influences as well.

The members of Black Violin performed at The Fox in Spokane Saturday night. Earlier in the day, they took the stage at East Central Community Center to talk about their path into the music business.
