Texas Music Festival: Lavard Skou-Larsen & Xiao Wang

Brazilian conductor Lavard Skou-Larsen tells us about the works by Richard Strauss and Johannes Brahms that he’ll direct with the Texas Music Festival Orchestra this weekend at The Woodlands Pavilion and at the University of Houston, and we meet Chinese violinist, Xiao Wang, who plays the Sibelius Violin Concerto on those same concerts, as a result of his winning the TMF’s 2012 Cynthia Woods Mitchell Young Artist Competition.

Conductor Lavard Skou-Larsen, pianist Ean-ju Lee, and violinist Xiao Wang perform and talk with St.John Flynn.
