Listen Performance Today Chat - Robert Spano
Aug 15, 2013
Robert Spano is Music Director of the Aspen Music Festival and a pianist. Few people, though, realize that he's also a composer. Spano was an onstage guest for Performance Today's audience event at Aspen and he performed one of his own compositions. The piece was under water. It was inspired in part by Spano's memories of listening to early 20th century recordings of Debussy with his father.
