Birthday Cake

British conductor Sir Roger Norrington has been making waves in the music world for decades. He's passionate about getting orchestras to play his way. Norrington's current boss at the Stuttgart Radio Symphony said (with a wink and a grin) that if they had known what they were getting themselves into, they probably wouldn't have hired him. Luckily for them, they did. Today's show features music from Norrington's 75th birthday concert, last month in London.
