Composer Julian Milone at La Jolla SummerFest

Host Fred Child wraps up his visit to La Jolla's SummerFest with composer Julian Milone, who has transformed familiar favorites and rewritten them for four violins and a double bass.

After a chat with Milone, we hear a performance by violinists Cho Liang Lin, Jun Iwasaki, David Chan and Yoon Kwon, and bassist Jeremy Kurtz. They play three pieces adapted by Milone: Caprice No. 9 (Paganini), "It Ain't Necessarily So" (Gershwin) and "Cheremushki Galop" (Shostakovich).
