Kendall Feeney is a fine musician, teacher and great friend of Spokane Public Radio. Jim Tevenan invites her to the performance studio this Piano Bench for a chat, also to play and share her insights on a landmark piece of music, J. S. Bach's "Well-Tempered Clavier." Kendall's insightful and enthusiastic commentary on the music is brought to life by her own spirited playing and recorded selections by Vladimir Feltsman and Andras Schiff.
