New Classical Tracks...and Sammy

Every Thursday this month, Julie Amacher joins Fred to recommend a new classical CD. This week, Julie is in love with conductor Gustavo Dudamel, and the under-25 players in the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela. Plus, we'll meet Sammy, the tiny white fluffball of a dog who goes everywhere with American pianist Anne Marie McDermott.
