Dr. Scott Holden sometimes hosts Highway 89 as a volunteer (which we always enjoy and very much appreciate!) but today he’s our musical guest and he shares with us some phenomenal pieces for solo piano.  Dr. Holden is the Director of Keyboard Studies at BYU and a member of the American Piano Quartet. His music degrees are from the University of Michigan, the Manhattan School of Music and the Julliard School, where he was awarded the Horowitz prize. He’s won numerous piano competitions, performed in 35 states and in countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia, he spent a year studying and performing in Budapest at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music where he was a Fulbright Scholar, and all of this is just a fancy way of saying that he’s very, very good.  Dr. Holden shares with host Eric Glissmeyer insights into the life of composer Vernon Duke, also known as Vladimir Dukelsky. He also talks about memories of Paris, pianos around the world, and his new CD from Tantara Records. As always we’re so happy to have Dr. Holden visiting our studio.  Repertoire: R. SCHUMANN Arabeske Op. 18; HAYDN Sonata in C minor; RACHMANINOV Etudes Table eaux/No. 2 in A minor; LOWE Musings…and a Waltz; V. DUKE Parisian Suite, Surrealist Suite;  Follow Highway 89 on twitter @byuh89
