Classiclectic Feature: Interview with pianist Craig Swanson


Craig Swanson is a pianist who is very familiar with Johann Sebastian Bach's French Suites, and is particularly fond of the Fourth suite in Eb Major.  He dreamed about the idea of "The French Suite Kit" since hearing Glenn Gould talk about the possibility of a "New Listener," who would control participation in the listening process.

Classiclectic host Kurt Hauswirth spoke with Craig about his experience with the music of J.S. Bach, his thoughts on Glenn Gould's philosophy, and his thoughts on how a listener can experience music:

Kurt lives in Marquette with his family and can’t imagine living anywhere else. He loves music, games, running, being near water, and a fine cold brew coffee.
