Interview with violonist Sarah Chang (I)
Sunday, 24 January 2010 , 10.30

Sarah Chang is coming to Romania! On February 14th! This is a reason for all music lovers to rejoice, as it will be a huge surprise for those of you who have been accustomed to listen live to the most renowned interprets in the world only during the ‘George Enescu’ music festival. It will also be an opportunity for the American violinist to recall fond memories and for us to embark upon an ample interview for our very own Successful music stories programme.

We wanted to find out what it has meant to be a wonder-child at the end of the 20th century, in what way has her musical evolution been influenced by meetings with first rank personalities such as Sir Yehudi Menuhin, Isaac Stern or Kurt Masur but also what the musical agenda of a young successful interpreter looks like, with its avalanche of concerts, recitals and recording sessions. And so we have!

If you want to find out for yourself the answer to these questions and also to pencil violinist Sarah Chang’s musical profile, tune in on Sunday January 24th, from 10.30, to listen to the first part of the exclusive interview the performer has granted us.
