At the age of 70, composer Leos Janacek wrote a sextet recalling his youth as a choirboy at St. Thomas Abbey in the Czech city of Brno. On Thursday's Performance Today, hear Mladi (Youth) by Leos Janacek, from a concert in Round Top, Texas. In addition, we'll continue our conversation with the Vera Quartet, our PT Young Artist in Residence, including a performance of Beethoven's String Quartet No. 9.
