41min 56sec : In studio with David Finckel and Wu Han

What makes two musicians a successful duo? Certainly it takes hard work, careful listening, a little diplomacy, but also some musical chemistry. Cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han are partners on stage and off. They joined host Fred Child in the Performance Today studio recently to talk about that mysterious alchemy that happens when two people see music eye to eye and to play two pieces perfect for St. Valentine.

Music includes:
* Cello Sonata No. 1, Op. 38 --I. Allegro by Johannes Brahms
* Cello Sonata by Claude Debussy
* Cello Sonata in G minor, Op. 19 --III. Andante by Sergei Rachmaninoff
