New album captures the sounds of San Antonio composer Peter Petroff

SungEunPark_Rhapsodies_Petroff_CD.jpg

San Antonio-based composer Peter Petroff has a new album out. "Rhapsodies" spans a three-decade period. It's a collection of his rhapsodies early and late, played by the Texas pianist SungEun Park.

"She does a much better job with the rhapsodies than I do, and that's an honest to God statement," Petroff joked recently during a visit with us on Classical Connections. "I was so glad I met her about four or five years ago at Texas State [University], and I've been just so fortunate [that] she's interested in the music, and she's performed it and recorded it." Listen to the audio in the player above to hear him talk more about it, about navigating the territory of modern-and-approachable music, and about future events for San Antonio and Texas composers.
