Rudolf Buchbinder

April 21, 2014

Rudolf Buchbinder

Rudolf Buchbinder grew up in a house with a piano, despite the fact that no one in his family played music. That piano became a source of inspiration for Buchbinder, who has grown up to have a tremendous career as a pianist. We'll hear him play Beethoven on Monday's Performance Today.
