Interview with Spokane PR's Jim Tevenan

Roman Rabinovich is currently recording all of Haydn's piano sonatas for First Hand Records, with the 2nd volume set for release later this year. A great champion of Haydn's music, his explorations of the keyboard sonatas have included a 42-sonata cycle at The Bath Festival and partial cycles at Lammermuir Festival, ChamberFest Cleveland and the Israel Conservatory of Music.  This first volume includes two CDs featuring Piano Sonatas Nos. 36, 32, 29, 52 and 47, as well as Divertimento in E-flat. The KDFC: San Francisco 'Download' for this week ( week of April 16 ) comes from the first volume by the young Israeli-born pianist. Rabinovich sat down with Spokane Public Radio classical music host, James Tevenan to discuss the recording. Listen to the attached file.
