: Peter Schickele's Spring Forward

Peter Schickele Courtesy of the artist

It may be the wrong time of year, but Peter Schickele's Spring Forward is such a graceful piece that we couldn't wait to share it with you. Yes indeed, that Peter Schickele - the man who created the wackiness of PDQ Bach is also a serious composer. We'll hear his new piece, Spring Forward, on Friday's Performance Today.
