Performance Today®

with host Fred Child

: May 15, 2015: Retro and radical, all at once

The Pines of Rome Al Palatino

Retro enough to call for Roman trumpets, but radical enough to call for a tape recorder playing alongside the orchestra. On Friday's Performance Today, we'll hear the New York Philharmonic in concert, performing Ottorino Respighi's retro and radical Pines of Rome.
