Happy Thanksgiving from Beethoven Walks into a Bar! And Happy FIRST Thanksgiving to our guest Aziz Shokhakimov! In this week's episode, we chat off the podium with Aziz who is in town to lead the Kansas City Symphony and fellow Uzbek Behzod Abduraimov in a program of Smetana, Prokofief and Dvořák. Our conversation runs the gamut from programming to jellied cranberry sauce, including a Top 5 things you were doing at age 13. Here's a hint: only one of us was making our conducting debut. All this and more, this week on Beethoven Walks into a Bar.
