The Calder Quartet plays some Philip Glass before one of the most exhilarating works in the classical canon - Mendelssohn's "Italian" Symphony - is performed in Prague by Pavel Safarik and the Prague Chamber Orchestra. Alain Altinoglu leads the French National Orchestra in a Chausson symphony in Paris. And pianist Claude Frank plays Bach.
