In April 2023, Conductor and violinist Scott Yoo is on the road again, to more fantastic, far flung locations. Here’s a ‘what's coming up’ on Now Hear This Season 4. 

401. Piazzolla’s History with Tango - Scott and his wife Alice Dade, a leading flutist, travel to Buenos Aires to discover the music of Astor Piazzolla, who fell in love with tango. Then fell out of love. Then tango fell out of love with him. Scott and Alice play with Argentina’s greatest musicians and dancers, to find out if Piazzolla and tango could ever reconcile.

402. Schumann: Genius and Madness - Many composers have struggled with mental health problems, few more famously than Robert Schumann. Scott goes to Scotland, Germany and France, with leading musicians, psychiatrists and scholars, to try to understand the connection between mental health and creativity in the work of Schumann and other great artists.

403. Andy Akiho Found (his) Sound - Scott follows modern composer, steel pan virtuoso and video artist Andy Akiho, off the beaten path through Andy’s neighborhoods of New York, to try to figure out how this unassuming musical visionary has combined Caribbean, Asian and jazz influences to become one of the most in-demand composers in classical music today. 

404. Albéniz: Portraits of Spain - Like Scarlatti before him, Isaac Albéniz was a keyboard composer captivated by Spain. Scott travels with guitarist Manuel Barrueco and pianist Juan Perez Floristan through the great Spanish cities of Andalusia, to see how Albéniz captured their culture, history and sounds in a brilliant series of musical portraits, his most celebrated works.
