Paul Neubauer

November 22, 2011

RIsky Business

Paul Neubauer is no stranger to risk-taking. He went from a nice safe prestigious orchestra job as principal violist with the New York Philharmonic to the far less certain life of a traveling viola soloist. In today's show, Neubauer takes musical risks with a set of three Gypsy-inspired works for viola and piano.
