Fred Child, host of MPR's Performance Today program, speaks with Wendy and Irina about the beginnings of their partnership, and their most recent recording, discussing among other things Wendy's tutelage under Mistlav Rostropovich, Piatigorsky's thinking behind the transcription of Scriabin's etude for Piano, and the origins of NIcolai Miaskovsky's exquisitely romantic cello and piano sonata, and the "Russian soul" in Rachmaninov's lyrical as well as tumultuous G-minor sonata for piano and cello. Includes in-studio performances, and an in-studio video recording of the Alexander Scriabin etude.
