During a Spring 2011 US tour, the gentlemen of amarcord stopped by Boston’s WGBH Fraser Studio for conversation with All Classical host Cathy Fuller, and a live performance for a small studio audience. You can listen to the whole program, including works by Edward Elgar, Robert Schumann, Carl Steinacker, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Orlande de Lassus and more.

Before amarcord's April 3, 2011 concert at Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the ISGM newsletter spoke with founding member bass Daniel Knauft about the ensemble. The resulting interview covers amarcord’s history (they met as young boys in Leipzig’s historic St. Thomas Boys Choir) their current rehearsal techniques, what it was like growing up behind the Iron Curtain, the story behind the ensemble’s name and much more.
