This week’s Classical Performance Podcast brings you some highlights from recent performances that were too short to present on their own – but too good to ignore. Join us for a musical feast as we travel through time and space to late-nineteenth-century Russia, to Baroque Germany, and to twentieth-century Brazil with Wendy Warner, Irina Nuzova, Tai Murray, and the Cuarteto Latinoamericano.
