The Tesla Quartet Performs in Stamford

The Friends of Music of Stamford, New York welcome the Tesla Quartet.  We hear from quartet founder Ross Snyder about the program, founding the quartet, and how he began studying violin because a trumpet was too heavy for a three-year-old. http://wskg.org/audio/tesla2.mp3

Pianist John Covelli collaborates with the Dave Eggar Quartet

Pianist John Covelli first met cellist Dave Eggar and his quartet when they performed for WSKG’s Expressions.  Each member has a multifaceted career outside of the quartet, so it took a long time to arrange this concert.  It features music by Busoni, Chopin, Corigliano, Gershwin, Paganini, and Robert Schumann.  The concert takes place on Sunday, June 28th at 2pm in the Schorr Family Firehouse Stage, the corner of Corliss Avenue and Willow Street in Johnson City. http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wskg/local-wskg-1040121.mp3
