Performance Today

with host Fred Child

The Dutch Connection

The Netherlands conjures up images of windmills, page-boy haircuts, and wooden shoes. But despite its small size, it's a big player on the classical music scene. In today's show, the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra plays Dvorak's 8th Symphony at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. And Dutch conductor Jaap van Zweden leads the Dallas Symphony in Beethoven's 7th, from a concert in Dallas.
