Hey diddle diddle, a section of fiddles, the horn jumped over the moon. The audience cheered to hear such sport, and the flute ran away with the tune. On today's show, Matthias Pintscher conducts the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in a performance of the Mother Goose Suite by Maurice Ravel, from a concert in Interlochen, Michigan.
