Lightning-Like Virtuosity from Filip Pogady

Violinist Filip Pogady

Violinist Filip Pogady brings his "lightning-like virtuosity" to Northwest Arkansas in a performance of Tchaikovsky's violin concerto with the Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra (APO) this weekend.

"It's dripping with emotions," Pogady explains on the technically difficult yet utterly transfixing concerto. "You go through all of the emotions a human being is able to have."

Find out more about this weekend's concert at the Arend Arts Center in Bentonville in my conversation with APO Music Director Steven Byess and guest violinist Filip Pogady and enjoy a little salon music from Massenet and Fritz Kreisler performed by Pogady along with pianist Tomoko Kashiwagi performed in the Firmin-Garner Performance Studio here at KUAF via the full stream below.
