The art of interpretation and details of technique are explained as master artists share their wisdom with the next generation of chamber musicians. This master class was led by bassoonist Peter Kolkay.
Peter Kolkay: Called “superb” by The Washington Post and “stunningly virtuosic” by The New York Times, Peter Kolkay is the only bassoonist to receive an Avery Fisher Career Grant (2004) and win First Prize at the Concert Artists Guild International Competition (2002).
Filmed live in the Daniel and Joanna S. Rose Studio on November 19, 2014.
