DrMarkMalkovich-podcastpic.jpgJongen: Symphonie Concertante with Michael Murray on Organ - In this episode of My Music w/ Dr. Mark Malkovich, Dr. Malkovich plays the music of Joeseph Jongen.  Jongen was born in Liege. On the strength of an amazing precocity for music, he was admitted to the Liège Conservatoire at the extraordinarily young age of seven, and there he spent the next sixteen years. The admission board was not disappointed. Jongen won a First Prize for Fugue in 1891, an honors diploma in piano the next year, and another for organ in 1896. In 1897, he won the prestigious Grande Prix de Rome which allowed him to travel to Italy, Germany and France.
