Performance Today for Monday, February 11, 2008

We'll have music and conversation with some of the freshly crowned classical Grammy winners, including composers Joan Tower and Peter Lieberson, pianist Garrick Ohlsson, violinist James Ehnes, and members of Eighth Blackbird and the Turtle Island Quartet. And we'll go to Amsterdam to hear Neeme Jarvi lead the Hague Philharmonic in Sibelius' Fifth Symphony.
