The Iron Curtain, U-2 and Gary Powers, and culture all came together for pianist Byron Janis in 1960 as a United States cultural ambassador to the Soviet Union. While the US enjoyed pianist Sviatoslav Ritcher performing concerts in America, Janis performed in Moscow and Leningrad in 1960. While it has often been thought that officials and citizens were "bugged" and recorded for espionage, it came as quite a surprise that a concert had been recorded without the artist's knowledge.

Fast forward 48 years, and that historic performance by Byron Janis is now released by the artist himself. WBAA's John Clare spoke to Janis about the concert.

It's the question Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is asking for their program, From Pen to Piano, this Sunday at Loeb Playhouse on the Purdue University campus. WBAA's John Clare spoke to two members of the group, violinist Renée Jolles, and bassoonist Gina Cuffari about the program and touring.

Andre Watts entered the music scene at age 16 when Leonard Bernstein chose him to debut with the New York Philharmonic in a national broadcasted Young People's Concerts. Just two weeks later the legenary maestro asked Andre to substitute at the last minute for an ailing Glenn Gould with the Philharmonic, launching his career in storybook fashion.

Watts joins the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra Sunday afternoon in Loeb Playhouse for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 9. WBAA's John Clare spoke to him about the concert, about working without a conductor, and Mozart.
