Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Anne Akiko Meyers is an acclaimed concert violinist. She tells Steve Paulson about the difference between playing traditional western music and Japanese or other Asian music and we hear her play popular music from a variety of cultures.

Next, Jade Simmons is a classical pianist who's equally happy to play music by Samuel Barber or hip hop master DBR. She tells Anne Strainchamps about the music on her Revolutionary Rhythm CD and what she'll do to make serious music interesting to kids.

Then, Rita Dove, former Poet Laureate of the United States, talks with Jim Fleming about her book-length verse narrative, Sonata Mulattica, which tells the story of George Bridgetower, the mixed race violinist who first performed and bore the original dedication of what we now know as "The Kreutzer" sonata.

And finally, the iconic violinist of his generation, Joshua Bell tells Steve Paulson about his involvement with composer John Corigliano for The Red Violin film and subsequent concert pieces. They also discuss Bell's instruments and career. [Broadcast Date: July 16, 2010]
