Bonus Episode: Performance Preview with André Raphel
Guest Conductor, André Raphel, gives an insightful performance preview of the March 10 Youngstown Symphony Orchestra concert.
“This program is constructed with the concept of inspired voices and the human spirit. Each of the composers on this program – Higdon, Schumann, and Shostakovich – were inspired voices. Orli Shaham is one of the great pianists of our time – an inspired voice.” André Raphel
