In our quest to provide more audio and video content on TheaterJones, we're beginning with a new podcast by local pianist Jonathan Tsay, called Between the Barlines. Tsay has performed recitals for international organizations, including in Taiwan and Canada, as well as for local outfits Fine Arts Chamber Players and The Cliburn, where he works with classroom outreach.

He talks more about himself and the podcast in this introduction:



For the fourth episode Tsay chats with Mark Landson, a violinist who founded Open Classical DFW, an event that has become quite popular. Every Tuesday night at BuzzBrews on Lemmon Ave., musicians show up to showcase their talent on instruments or vocals. Landson also founded the chamber music ensemble Neo Camerata. Tsay and Landson talk about Landson's brief time in Japan in his teens, studying with the legendary violin teacher Shinichi Suzuki; his punk band the Apathetics, returning to classical music, working in Spain, and more.

Landson and members of Open Classial will perform the annual Halloween show, Night of the Living Dead Composers, at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30 at Pocket Sandwich Theatre in Dallas; and will present the quartet Invoke, Bowed and Fretted on Nov. 3 at Steinway Hall in Fort Worth, and Nov. 4 at a to-be-determined venue in Dallas.




» Between the Barlines will appear twice monthly on You can also listen to the podcast on our SoundCloud page.
