Pianist Conrad Tao.
He spoke with our Classical KING FM Creative Director, Dacia Clay.
Conrad talks about his recital in Octave 9 on March 6 and his appearance at the SSO Celebrate Asia concert this weekend. And he introduces us to a lesser-known side of Aaron Copland.
Copland’s outspoken activism as a gay man in early-20th-century America is often overshadowed by the composer’s iconic and bucolic ballet music.
