46min 3sec : Performance Today goes to the Fair

Brooklyn Rider is one of the most inventive and adventurous string quartets working today. They joined Performance Today host Fred Child for a live broadcast from the Minnesota State Fair with special guests Wu Man, playing the pipa, tabla player Sandeep Das and clarinetist and composer Evan Ziporyn. As summer temperatures sizzled, this music electrified the audience.
