: Scenes from childhood

American Composer Daniel Temkin Courtesy of the artist

A few years ago, American composer Daniel Temkin found an old memory box from his childhood that held a picture of him with his two younger siblings in his lap. On this episode of Performance Today, hear music inspired by that photo performed by siblings Ani and Ida Kavafian.
