hear it from the masters

Listen to our latest podcast from DC Public Library!

The Brown Bag Chamber Recital has been taking place at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library since 2002. Each month Vasily Popov and Ralitza Patcheva perform classical works by their favorite composers. Colleagues and friends are often invited to participate in these intimate chamber recitals, hosted in the Auditiorium, Room A-5.

We asked Mr. Popov a few questions about this recital series and about classical music in the 21st century. Featured on this podcast are cellist Vasily Popov and pianist Ralitza Patcheva performing music of Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Schönberg and Schumann during the February 5 Brown Bag Chamber Recital.
