- Inquires From My Inbox: sonofaguitar asks, “Where do you find the music for the Pibroch (Mackenzie’s Lament) that you play on your YouTube video??
- Random Musical Thought: Another difference between classical and non-classical music: familiarity with the repertoire, and whether or not the audience is listening one step ahead or one step behind.
- A discussion about Mozart's compositions for viola with guest artist, Eric Nowlin, particularly the Violin and Viola Duos. Includes musical examples (played by Rachel and Eric) from Mozart’s Violin and Viola Duos and Michael Haydn's earlier Duets. Rachel also tells the story of how Mozart came to the rescue of Michael Haydn by composing his duos.
