Parker Riffs on Mozart
Pianist Jon Kimura Parker sits down with host Fred Child to talk about Mozart cadenzas. Parker throws in all sorts of musical references in his cadenzas, which is what makes them so special. And a little controversial. We'll hear him perform Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.
