Those of a certain age remember the old Certs breath mint commercial, "It's TWO, TWO, TWO mints in one!" This week on Crossover, it's TWO, TWO, TWO great musicians in one! Grammy-nominated harpist Yolanda Kondonassis and Grammy-winning guitarist Jason Vieaux are duet partners on their new CD, Together.
A harp and a guitar - two plucked instruments played "together" by their virtuoso owners? This is quite a unique duo of instruments that wouldn't normally share the stage. But...maybe it's time they did!
Nadja Salerno Sonnenberg is Jill's guest. The world-famous violinist, a Curtis grad and winner of the Naumburg Violin Competition in 1981, launched her own recording label (NSS Music) in 2005, and is also concertmaster and music director of her own orchestra, the NEW CENTURY Chamber Orchestra based in San Francisco.
NSS Music released Together, Nadja's first recording collaboration with NEW CENTURY, in 2009.
