Vittorio Who?

01/25/12 3:00PM

This afternoon, we'll sample a new recording done by musicians from the Manchester Music Festival featuring the Piano Quintet by Italian-American composer Vittorio Giannini.  It's a fascinating and seldom-heard piece.  Also today, we revisit the New Years concert in Vienna from a few weeks ago, and hear favorite works of Haydn and Tchaikovsky.
