WGTE.org: Classical Conversations – O’Riley & Haimovitz: TROIKA

Christopher O'Riley & Matt Haimovitz

Pianist (and From The Top host) Christopher O’Riley joins forces with cellist Matt Haimovitz for their latest collaboration: TROIKA – a portrait of artistic rebellion in the face of political suppression. The two sat down with WGTE’s Brad Cresswell to talk about the album, which pairs works by Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev and Shostakovich with modern protest songs by Viktor Tsoi, Pussy Riot, and the Beatles.
