Classics Live 189: Kansas City pianist Sean Chen, who originally came to town as an artist in residence at the UMKC Conservatory, has been arranging orchestral music into vivid piano solos. Listen to pieces by Messiaen, Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, plus Schumann’s C major Fantasy for Piano.

Classics Live 190: A salute to Black composers through the centuries, including a violin concerto by Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, who was a fixture in the musical French courts of the 1700s. Music from Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s African Suite. And a Symphony for the Sons of Nam by James Kimo Williams, a composer and Viet Nam veteran. From the 2022 Sunflower Music Festival in Topeka.
