Testimonials

“Fred Kronacher presents extraordinary concerts with the style and flair of a Leonard Bernstein or a David Dubal. After once hearing him explain a musical work and demonstrating its subtle complexities, rehearing the same piece with this new perspective makes for a truly unforgettable experience. Kronacher is a Northwest musical resource without equal.”

Steven Lagerberg
Former President Chopin Society,
