On Record with Mei-Ann Chen and Inon Barnatan
This week's Rochester Philharmonic Orchestraconcerts bring conductor Mei-Ann Chen to the podium for her first appearance with the RPO and the return of pianist Inon Barnatan to the stage of Kodak Hall. Both chatted with Julia Figueras about the program which includes "Blue Cathedral," Jennifer Higdon's peaceful meditation on life's paths, Chopin re-orchestrated, and the RPO debut of Louise Farrenc's towering Symphony No. 3. Along the way, they discussed the pursuit of new music, what made Chopin happy, and persevering with passion.
