Violinist Lara St. John Talks About Her New Album "Key of A"
Violinist Lara St. John has released her latest album "Key of A" with pianist Matt Herskowitz. The album pairs Beethoven's Violin Sonata No. 9, "Kreutzer" in A Major with Cesar Franck's Sonata in A Major for Violin and Piano, and also includes Fritz Kreisler's Schön Rosmarin.
Lara says about the program: "I'm a bit of a strange violinist, and when I was a kid, supposed to be learning all these normal works that folks do, instead I was learning Bartok solo sonata and Debussy, and Beethoven Concerto and 10th Sonata, and I just sort of missed some of these more ‘normal' pieces. I learned both of these sonatas rather late in life - in my late 20s."
Listen in as I chat with Lara about her career, her own record label and this latest release.
Yours in good music,
