Gypsy Airs

05/20/11 8:00AM

This morning's Classic for Kids features famous Violin Concertos - though it's not a concerto, exactly, the Pablo de Sarasate "Zigeunerweisen" (Gypsy Airs) is very much a showpiece for the instrument. We'll hear it this morning in a brilliant performance by Gil Shaham. A little later in the show we'll hear a performance of pieces from students in the Vermont Midi Project.
