CPR Classical this Thursday presents one of the most dynamic young musicians in the country, in concert at the Aspen Music Festival and School.

Hear pianist Conrad Tao's full performance at 1 p.m. Wednesday on CPR Classical. It's part of our CPR Classical in Concert broadcast series.

The program, recorded in February at Harris Hall in Aspen, includes:

  • Jason Eckardt: "Echoes' White Veil"
  • Julia Wolfe: "Compassion"
  • Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 31 in A-flat
  • Liszt: Piano Sonata in B minor

Tao has entertained CPR Classical listeners in the past. He's a pianist as well as a composer. Here's footage of a unique piece he wrote and performed in the CPR Performance Studio a few years ago. It's called "Irridescence" for piano and iPad.

The young composer performs his own composition, written for piano and iPad.
