Violinist Alina Pogostkina

October 14, 2013

Remarkable Concert Violinist Alina Pogostkina

In 1992, Alina Pogostkina and her family moved from the recently collapsed Soviet Union to Heidelberg, Germany. They were broke so her family survived by playing music together on the streets. Twenty years later, Alina is a remarkable concert violinist. We'll hear her recent performance of the Korngold Violin Concerto in Belgium. On Monday's Performance Today, from APM.
