Conrad Tao is the pianist, composer and new music champion who appears in two concerts presented by the Seattle Symphony this week. He spoke with KING FM Creative Director, Dacia Clay. Conrad talks about his recital in Octave 9 on March 6 and his appearance at the SSO Celebrate Asia concert this weekend. And he introduces us to a lesser known side of Aaron Copland. Copland's outspoken activism as a gay man in early 20th Century America is often overshadowed by the composer's iconic and bucolic ballet music.
