Finnish pianist Juho Pohjonen offered a wide-ranging program this evening, beginning with Rameau’s G-Major Suite.
This performance features Jean-Philippe Rameau's "La poule" and was inspired by Rameu's favorite chicken! The composer wrote "co co co co co coco dai" under the opening notes to reinforce its resemblance to the cackling of hens. Do you think he got it right?
