Charles Amirkhanian discusses the challenges in performing George Antheil's Violin Sonata and String Quartet No. 1 with Antheil's wife and Anne Kish, a violinist. The tape starts with a discussion, recorded in the Berkeley home of Jeanne Stark, of Antheil’s 1923 “Sonata No. 1 for Violin and Piano” with Ann Kish, Böske Antheil, Jeanne Stark, and Charles Amirkhanian. This is followed by an interesting discussion of Antheil's importance by Kish, and comments by the composer's widow reminiscing about the early performances by Olga Rudge and Antheil of this music.

The program concludes with a performance of Antheil's “Quartet No. 1 for Strings” (1924), probably the first one since the mid-1920s. Until that time the score had languished in the composer's personal archive.

NOTE: The discussion is rather "off-mic" but intelligible.
