29min : Aspen Public Radio's Festival Showcase - Alan & Asadour; the 1949 Festival

The final Festival Showcase program of the season is a wrap-up interview with Alan Fletcher and Asadour Santourian, who talk about the highlights for them of the season.

We also close out the show with a little known tidbit of music history: the first major woman conductor, Antonia Brico, came to the first Aspen Music Festival season before it was even a Festival!

We are happy to offer weekly installments of Festival Showcase with Chris Mohr from our colleagues at Aspen Public Radio.
