Classical 101.1 WRR Focus on the Arts: Pianist Rachel Naomi Kudo returns to Dallas

“I think his fantastical nature — his imagination — just comes through so vividly, colorfully,” says pianist Rachel Naomi Kudo, speaking of Robert Schumann’s music. Kudo performed works by Schumann, Bach, and Brahms recently at a concert at Collora Piano in Dallas, followed by a master class. She chatted with Amy Bishop by phone ahead of the events to talk about the program and her long relationship with North Texas.
