Recital via Railroad on YouTube

The Beyond Baroque concert Recital via Railroad: Historic Montana Violin & Piano, 1890-1920, performed on April 2, 2022, in Reynold Hall on the MSU campus can be seen in its entirety on YouTube: Featuring Carrie Krause on violin and Julie Gosswiller on piano.

This recital is based on the first violin recitals performed in Montana. Once the railroad was laid and before the advent of movies, the best violinists in the world—including Kreisler, Ysaye, Maud Powell, Jan Kubelik, Mischa Elman, and their phenomenal recital pianists—shared the most beloved and impressive tunes of the day across Montana from Belt to Livingston. This program explores those fabulous players, the opera houses and theaters where they played, and the repertoire beloved to them and audiences both then and today.
