102.5 ~ Even Younger Performers
radio broadcast ~ October 2006
August 26, 2006 I auditioned for the "Even Younger Performers" at 2MBS-FM in
My program consisted of Libra Sonatine (Roland Dyens), Sonate BWV 1034 3rd movement
(J.S. Bach), Caprice no. 24 (Niccolo Paganini), El Colibri (Julio Sagreras),
La Catedral 3rd movement (Agustin Barios Mangore) and Tarantelle (Johann Kaspar
A week later, I received a letter of acceptance to perform in the October 2006
2MBS Even Younger Performers live recital series.
The scheduled broadcast date was October 15, 2006 at 12pm, so we had one hour
to warm up and for sound check.
The first performer was Lucia Li on the piano, a cute five-year-old girl who
began learning piano at the age of 3 on the Suzuki method. For this recital,
she was carried to sit on the piano stool and a big box as a special footrest.
She played Beethoven Sonatina in G quite wonderfully.
I was also very impressed by the music of Narek Shamavonian on the Oboe, playing
Saint-Saens Sonata for Oboe and the Bach Sonata for Oboe.
These couple of hours were quite entertaining and educational, especially talking
with the performers and listening to their music.
