Over the decades that Bill has conducted orchestras and hosted radio programs, he feels very fortunate to have worked with and become friends with many prominent musicians. In this program, Bill will feature some of these virtuosic musicians whom he has watched grow and has admired for many years. To highlight this warm spirit of musical friendships, Bill has chosen many works that composers have written for their best friends, who also happen to be virtuosi. Five hours of gorgeous rich tones and great melodies like Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto played by pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet featuring the Pacifica Quartet and their friend Anthony McGill, and Chopin’s Cello Sonata with pianist Garrick Ohlsson accompanying cellist Carter Brey.
