Behind the Playlist with Pianist David Korevaar, Louisville Public Radio, 4/7/24

“Musicians are interpreters, performers, and sometimes also detectives. Pianist David Korevaar visited Italy to investigate the pocket-sized manuscript of the Piano Trio by composer Luigi Perrachio, turning it into a performance-ready piece of sheet music. The result is a delightful newly released recording with the Carpe Diem String Quartet. Hear about the adventure, as well as the album’s moving dedication.” | full interview
