Show Notes

Jason Vieaux is not just a Grammy-winning classical guitarist – he’s a pioneer, taking on new works that have never been performed or recorded before, like those of composer Jonathan Leshnoff. Leshnoff is an adventurer, too, writing virtuosic material for instruments he’s never played, like the guitar. Find out how these fearless frontiersman find the fortitude to forge foreign… uh…how they make and play brand new stuff. The end.
