Backstage With Brian Bell

A production of  
  

John Browning on Barber

In February 1994, when John Browning gave the first BSO performances of the Barber Piano Concerto since the world premiere in 1962, he spoke with Classical New England's Brian Bell.  They talk about the 1962 premiere and the significant differences in tempo of the two recordings he made of the work.  John Browning also talks about recording the Prokofiev Piano Concertos with Erich Leinsdorf, and we meet
Tyler, John Browning's 5 lb. dog.
