The Lark Ascending?
Rob Clearfield is a renowned jazz performer in Chicago. He never did much with classical music, however, until a few tentative forays he took in 2017. Once he added classical snippets to his playing on a lark, people told him that he was great at it and that he should try it some more! Read more at chicagotribune.com

The Pianist as Collaborator
The term "accompanist" conjures up visions of bespectacled schoolmarms playing chords under a terrible, 10-year-old violinist in a too big suit. In reality, the pianist is an equal to the soloist. Most high-quality sonatas are that way. The Brahms clarinet sonatas are famous for being more difficult for the pianist than in his actual piano sonatas, for example. Read more at thestrad.com
