Classical Spotlight: SXSW

Gabriel Prokofiev, grandson of Sergei Prokofiev, was featured Saturday night at SXSW.

The Elysian Quartet, seen below left, and violin-and-laptop duo John Matthias and Nick Ryan performed. In between sets, Prokofiev will DJ.
Joining Saturday's Nonclassical showcase was Austin's own contingent for boundary-busting indie classical musicians: Graham Reynolds, Peter Stopschinski (seen right), P. Kellach Waddle and the Tosca String Quartet.

Enjoy this interview with Prokofiev before the show:
