Hailed by the New York Times as a "cellist of remarkable gifts," Austin-based musician Bion Tsang celebrates 15 years of music-making in Austin with a new record release. The Blue Rock Sessions is an album of miniatures for cello and piano the likes of which were extremely popular during the first half of the twentieth century. There are transcriptions by people like Pablo Casals, Isaac Stern, and Jascha Heifetz, and in many cases Tsang himself has added his own touch of personal flare to the transcriptions. Bion Tsang stopped by the KMFA studios to talk with host Chris Johnson about the new record and to share some of the inspiration behind it.
The Blue Rock Sessions is available for download and on CD. More information is available at www.biontsang.com.
