Have you ever been surprised to run into someone you know while travelling or not where you normally expect to see them? Coincidence can be a real delight. These days you might expect to see someone or even plan it, with social media tagging our location.

Long before facebook or yelp, composers and performers connected in person and through letters. We’ll hear some cool connections, made in the salon of Heinrich von Herzogenberg, and talk with violinists Renaud Capuçon and Cecilia Zilliacus on today’s What’s New.

The newest release from Jorge Frederico Osorio is sumptuous music by Franz Schubert and Johannes Brahms. On Osorio's first Schubert recording, Final Thoughts, he performs the composer's final two Piano Sonatas, D. 959 and D. 960, hailed as "epic in scale and brimming with melodic invention." Jorge's Cedille Records albums of Mexican and Spanish music have "introduced the pianist to new audiences worldwide, but Osorio can now heard in more of the core German repertoire that has been central to his concert life for decades." WBAA Music Director John Clare spoke with Osorio about Final Thoughts.
