Orchestra Iowa soloists shine in 3 gems
Tune in Sunday at noon or Monday at 7PM as four Orchestra Iowa members perform overlooked gems by Mozart, Schubert and Faure. They start with an unfinished String Trio by the teenage Schubert, continue with a Piano Trio in C major that Mozart wrote while working on his "Jupiter" Symphony, then come together for a powerful Piano Quartet in G Minor by Faure, his second. The four superb soloists - violinist Xian Meng, violist Lisa Ponton, cellist Carey Bostian, and pianist Miko Kominami - were recorded last September as part of IPR's Symphonies of Iowa series.
