We had a great Live In Studio Session with Ken Holt and Who I Am.  If  you missed the airing, you can hear the podcast below:

A keyboard duet can be anything from two kids picking out "Chopsticks" on an old upright piano to the cathedral-filling two-organ concerti of Antonio Soler.

We'll have a selection of music for four hands this week - some of it meant for the concert hall, some for the parlor; some of it virtuosic recital material, some mostly for fun.

And we'll leave the "Chopsticks" behind, thank you very much.

Of course it's a story about death and Seattle music.

I woke up this morning after bad dreams last night, only to find the real nightmare — that Chris Cornell of Soundgarden was dead. As with all these losses it seems surreal, untrue, unimaginable. But there it is.

Late 19th-century Paris opera-goers felt cheated if their evenings-out didn't include a ballet scene somewhere in the performance. When Giuseppe Verdi was told that he had to write such a score and insert it into the drama, interrupting the action, he was apalled.
