Hosted by NPR Commentator/Conductor/Pianist Rob Kapilow
Featuring Nurit Pacht, violin and Taisiya Pushkar, piano

Beethoven wrote his celebrated Kreutzer Sonata at a pivotal point in his life and career, when a major psychological breakdown had radically changed his artistic vision and sparked a musical and personal self-reinvention. Host Rob Kapilow explores what makes this conflicted, contradictory piece the first radically individual violin sonata in the history of music.
