Where there's smoke...
Best to have your fire extinguisher at the ready. Today we'll feature an hour of both fiery and fire-inspired music in the second half of our show. From Stravinsky's Firebird ballet arranged for five pianos to the fiery "Devil's Trill" performed by violinist Joshua Bell, it'll be a scorcher on Performance Today.
