Original airdate 
Jun 9, 2017

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra guest pianist Behzod Abduraimov shares his thoughts about the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No 1 which he plays for his Heinz Hall debut. He recalls his journey from Tashkent to Kansas City where he’s lived the last ten years, what it’s like there and in his native Tashkent where he attended the same school as Yefim Bronfman. He talks about his recordings including the  Tchaikovsky with Juraj Valcuha and  a suggestion of what to try when in Tashkent—don’t miss the rice pilaf!
