Episode 19 — Yuan-Qing Yu and Pavel Šporcl

This episode of Classical Chicago features two virtuosic violinists: Yuan-Qing Yu of the Civitas Ensemble and Pavel Šporcl of Gipsy Way Ensemble! Their upcoming album, Alla Zingarese, is a groundbreaking collaboration at the crossroads of Western classical and Romani musical traditions. The project is the outgrowth of the enduring friendship between Šporcl and Yu dating back to their student days that embraces the past with new arrangements of well-loved, Gypsy-infused works while celebrating the present with new music by noted Czech composer Lukáš Sommer. All CDs and downloads ship August 17. Happy listening!
