Classic 107.3’s John Clare talks with Danish violinist and St. Louis Symphony Orchestra guest conductor Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider about this weekend’s SLSO concerts that explore the many meanings of home: Karim Al-Zand’s Luctus Profugis honors the courage of refugees fleeing Syria, Má vlast is Bedřich Smetana’s search for the voice of his native Bohemia, and pianist Ingrid Fliter finds comfort in the beating heart of Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto.

Szeps-Znaider discusses how this program came together, as well as what his SLSO residency is like. Find more information about the concerts and purchase tickets here.
