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."Key of A" featuring Lara St. John & Matt Herskowitz

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,
