Sounds Genius:  Franck Sonata in A Major for Violin and Piano

"Sounds Genius" (formerly Masterpiece Discovery) is perfectly summed up by Salastina's motto "To know great music is to love great music." Our trademark concert format is not a lecture. It's no dry analysis. We share how musical works of human genius throw open the doors of our hearts, connecting us to the beauty of life and human potential.

For Salastina's inaugural performance in stunning and intimate Barrett Hall, Kevin dives into the moody and sensuous Franck Violin Sonata with award-winning pianist Steven Vanhauwaert.  KUSC's Brian Lauritzen, our Resident Host, explores what makes this one of the most beloved works of the Romantic era.
