Irina Lupines

Russian flutist Irina Stachinskaya came into town for a Rochester Flute Association Master Class and recital at the Eastman School of Music. She and pianist Irina Lupines made room in their schedules for Backstage Pass with Julia Figueras. Irina Stachinskaya was only 14 when she landed her first job: Principal Flute for the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra. Since then, she's been very, very busy...and you'll get to hear about her adventures Tuesday, April 2 at 1 PM. The show repeats on Sunday, April 7 at 1 PM.

Eastman Community School of Music

Graduation can be a fraught time, filled with questions about what's next. Flutist Adam Sadberry , about to graduate from the Eastman School of Music, has no such worries--he recently won the Detroit Symphony Orchestra's African-American Fellowship, and will be a member of the DSO flute section for the next 2 years. On the next Backstage Pass, Adam will talk with Julia Figueras about the fellowship, his turn on NPR's From the Top, and more...and play works by Georges Enesco, William Grant Still, Erwin Schulhoff, and Frank Martin.
