More Details:

  • When violinist Karen Gomyo isn’t playing classical music, she teams up with friends to play tango.
  • Hugh Wolff recorded an astonishing 19 CDs with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra (SPCO) between 1988-2000.
  • Fans and critics especially love Wolff’s recording with the SPCO and Hilary Hahn in Barber’s Violin Concerto; the final movement tears the lid off the piece!
  • Wolff was born in Paris, where his father worked as a US Foreign Service officer.
