YOSA: Korngold Interview

Coming up Sunday, February 8th, the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio present Tall Tales, Magical Melodies at Laurie Auditorium. They'll play Dvorak's Slavonic Dance #2, Kodaly's Hary Janos, and Korngold's Cello Concerto with Charlene Debus.
Recently, Charles Noble spoke with Katy Korngold Hubbard about her famous grandfather:

What are some highlights of hearing live performances of Korngold’s music? And where in the world has this taken you? Our family has had wonderful experiences traveling within the United States and abroad for Korngold performances. As I’ve mentioned, 1997 was the centenary - my mother, my husband, both our children and I went to London to hear several concerts at the Proms given at Royal Albert Hall. This was the first time we had the pleasure of hearing Gil Shaham play the Violin Concerto - and what a treat it was!
