Corky Siegel’s Chamber Blues blends the sounds of classical chamber music, American blues, and Indian percussion. The ebullient harmonica virtuoso and composer made his Earthly debut in Chicago in October 1943, and during this Impromptu Encore from 2018, special guest, violinist Rachel Barton Pine, honored the occasion with her breathtaking variations on “Happy Birthday”.
