Gustavo Dudamel, conductor Mathias Bothor

Belgium is quite proud of Adolphe Sax, the inventor of the saxophone. On Friday's show we'll go to the country where the saxophone was invented and hear the PT debut of a 28 year-old Belgian saxophone soloist, Simon Diricq, as he performs with the Liège Royal Philharmonic. Also, we'll go to a concert at Walt Disney Hall, the home-base of conductor Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. On Performance Today, from APM.
