Lincoln Center

February 22, 2013

Lincoln Center

Like a neutron star, New York's Lincoln Center is hot, bright, and densely packed. Eleven different arts organizations call it home, including the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Ballet, and the Juilliard School. There's more raw talent per square inch than just about any other place on earth. Today, we'll hear two stellar performances presented by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, works by Beethoven and Dvorak.
