You know how you sometimes put something down and then can't remember where you left it? It happens to us all -- even composers. In the 1760s, Joseph Haydn lost a cello concerto. And that concerto was missing until the 1960s, a two full centuries later! On Monday's Performance Today, we'll hear a performance of Haydn's long-lost Cello Concerto from a concert in Houston.
