Are you a fan of Olympic figure skating? It's part ballet and part acrobatics on ice. Pianist Orli Shaham is a big fan, especially when it comes to the rituals and traditions.
You're invited to react spontaneously any time you hear her play. Ms. Shaham has a lot to say about music and the classical music world on her website www.orlishaham.com.
The music heard here was Mozart's Sonata for Violin and Piano in D Major, K. 306, Mvt. 1. It comes from Gil and Orli Shaham's "Mozart in Paris" CD (Canary Classics CC 010).
