Radio debut on CPR Classical: ‘America/Beautiful’ with pianist Min Kwon

Pianist Min Kwon brought together more than 70 composers of diverse heritage and backgrounds to represent the sound of America in the “America/Beautiful” project.

Pianist Min Kwon asked over 70 of America's leading composers from varying cultures to compose a variation on "America the Beautiful." Through this musical initiative, Kwon aims to showcase the diversity and beauty of America while promoting unity and understanding among its people. CPR Classical gives the broadcast debut of these exclusive, incredible variations: "America/Beautiful" with pianist Min Kwon.

Min's goal for her America/Beautiful project is to "find the beauty at the core of the American experiment and its credo of e pluribus unum (out of many, one)."

In partnership with Min Kwon, hear the radio premiere on CPR Classical of new variations by distinguished composers Libby Larson, Samuel Zyman, Terry Riley, Gyan Riley, Jiyoung Ro, Kristan Järvi, Dave Ragland, Nico Muhly, Peter Boyer, and more.

Then see Min Kwon in recital playing from her America/Beautiful project at Harris Hall at the Aspen Music Festival and School on August 5.
