Performance Today

with host Fred Child

Meet Mayumi Kanagawa

There's plenty of gloomy talk these days about the impending death of classical music. Nay-sayers point to dwindling audiences and orchestra balance sheets awash in red ink. After today's show, you won't be able to reach any conclusion except one: the future of classical music is in very good hands. We're featuring some remarkable young musicians, including Time for Three, pianist Mariangela Vacatello, and PT's newest Young Artist-in-Residence, violinist Mayumi Kanagawa, who will be in the PT studios for the next five days.
