A Chat with Grammy Nominated Classical Pianist Petronel Malan

cutie.jpg
Aired on Monday, April 23rd.

On today's show, we present a chat with the charming, delightful, and highly accomplished young concert pianist, Petronel Malan, whose debut CD, "Transfigured Bach: The Complete Bach Transcriptions of Bartok, Lipatti, and Friedman," was nominated for three Grammy Awards in 2004. (She's made three additional CDs of "transfigured" music since then.) Malan will perform as a guest artist with Tulsa Camerata on Thursday night (the 26th) at 7pm in Emerson Hall at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa. Equally dedicated to education and performance, Tulsa Camerata is a well-respected chamber music ensemble formed here in our city in 2010, and Malan has actually played with this collective once before. On the program for Thursday night's concert, which carries the title of "Darkness & Light," are works by Janá?ek (Mládí [“Youth”] for Wind Sextet), Beethoven (String Quintet in C minor, Op. 104), and Dohnányi (Sextet in C major, Op. 37). Malan will play on the wonderfully tuneful and accessible (yet rather non-standard) Dohnányi piece. You can learn more about Tulsa Camerata here. Also, you can learn more about Malan's recordings at this link.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
