Strauss's horn concerto for Dad

It is no surprise Richard Strauss wrote music that features exciting French Horn parts. His own father was one of the best horn players in Europe. We'll hear a concerto Strauss wrote for his father's 60th birthday. Plus, Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan sits down with PT host Fred Child at Steinway Hall in New York City to perform music with a split personality. On Tuesday's Performance Today, from APM.
