Fargo, ND, October 18, 2016 – Prairie Public will premiere a new, locally produced television documentary chronicling the life, work, and legacy of Malcolm Frager, an award-winning and Grammy-nominated pianist. The documentary will premiere at 9:30 p.m. CT, October 24.
Frager’s talent and scholarship was honored with numerous prestigious awards, and his influence and perseverance uncovered a cache of more than a thousand original manuscripts by Bach, Beethoven, Schumann, and Mozart that had been missing since World War II.
One of the producers of the documentary, Dr. Robert J. Chabora, had a passion about the life and music of Malcolm Frager. A respected writer and biographer, Dr. Chabora’s book, “Search and Celebration: The Life and Art of Malcolm Frager” is currently being completed posthumously in conjunction with the documentary.
