On Saturday February 3rd at 1:00 PM, tune in to Kids on Keys, hosted by WWFM – The Classical Network and its Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler. This monthly show is sponsored by Jacobs Music Company, and showcases live performances with some of the best young piano talent in WWFM’s immediate broadcast area of Central and Southern New Jersey. You can tune in on the radio at 89.1 FM or live stream from the WWFM website.
This week’s program reprises memorable performances from past programs by young pianists Elizabeth Yang, Joshua Baw, Catherine Chu, John Kim, Anthony Cheng and Hans Derek-Yu. One of the most talked-about prodigies from the early 1980s, the Greek pianist Dimitri Sgouros will be heard in the Rachmaninov Third Piano Concerto’s opening movement, from a recording made for EMI when the pianist was fourteen.
