Life is very full and rich: full of music and rich with friends. This week I’m celebrating both with the release of my first duo album on Avie Records with the incredibly talented violinist Augustin Hadelich. My good friend is with me now to help tell the story of how we came to play together and make this album of music by Franck, Kurtág, Schumann and André Previn
