Weekend of March 10, 2012

Live from Carnegie Hall

Three weeks ago, Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes gave a solo recital at Carnegie Hall in New York. PT's Fred Child was there, hosting the live APM special. In case you missed it, we'll be rebroadcasting highlights from Andsnes' spectacular performance on today's show, works by Haydn, Debussy, and Rachmaninoff.
