On this week's Mizzou Music, Trevor Harris from Classical 90.5 talks with four MU School of Music faculty including Eva Szekely, Bill Kalinkos, Stefan Freund and Anthony Glise about upcoming recitals and performances.

During his heyday, Italian born composer and cellist Luigi Boccherini had a reputation approaching that of his contemporary Franz Joseph Haydn. Today, Boccherini is remembered for but a few virtuoso works for strings. That's a shame because his influence on the string quartet may be his most lasting gift to classical music.

For several years now, I have been talking with Missouri Symphony Orchestra Maestro Kirk Trevor and my KBIA colleagues about a show that I felt we should be producing and broadcasting. The challenge was that we had to find support for and record the program. Let me explain.

This week's CD of the Week on Classical 90.5 is a new-ish release from pianist Vassily Primakov and clarinetist Alexey Gorokholinsky. Their 2014 issue on Primakov's own LP Classics label features an update on a work that inspired both artists during their days at The Julliard School: Carl Maria von Weber's Grand Duo Concertante.

Cecilia String Quartet

This week's CD of the Week on Classical 90.5 is the new release from the Toronto-based Cecilia String Quartet.

For their latest release the quartet focuses on a pair of string quartets that Felix Mendelssohn wrote in 1838 while honeymooning in Germany's Black Forest. Trevor Harris recently interviewed the quartet's cellist Rachel Desoer. They talked about working on your honeymoon, the quartet's concerts for special needs students and how the group selects their concert and performance repertoire.
