French Masters on ASP This Week

Works by four of France's greatest composers are featured on this week's presentation of Amarillo Symphony Presents. 

Jacomo Bairos conducts Ravel's "Rigadoun" from "Le Tambeau de Couperin" and "La Mer," one of the greatest works in the symphonic repertoire. 

Violinist Ilana Sutapen is the soloist for Camille Saint-Saens' "Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso" and the stirring "Poeme for Violin and Orchestra" by Ernst Chausson. These two pieces are performed under the baton of guest conductor Lawrence Loh.

As the host of Open Range, Steve Johnson brings a lifetime of hearing and performing a wide variety of music to this unique program. Growing up in a home where everything from opera to Bill Evans and the Beatles were heard and embraced, he studied piano in college where he became passionate about free-form radio where you might hear everything from punk rock to classic country or jazz in the course of a few hours. Open Range is your invitation to an hour of radio unleashed- presented with heart and humor. All you need for this adventure is an open mind and open ears.
