Aspen Perfchats

Here at PT, we call them perfchats: music and conversation with some of the top artists in classical music. In today's show, the first in a series of perfchats from the Aspen Music Festival. Pianist Steven Osborne plays music by Ravel and Prokofiev, from a special event recorded at Aspen on Monday night. Plus, the art of busking at Aspen.
