In today's show, a performance of a Haydn symphony that had a Viennese audience laughing out loud. We'll let you in on the joke, as Daniel Barenboim conducts the Vienna Philharmonic in Haydn's Farewell symphony. Plus, pianist Yuja Wang delivers a jaw-dropping performance of music from Stravinsky's ballet "Petrushka" in St. Paul.
