Today we'll listen to Schumann's Davidsbundlertanze (Dances of the Band of David) played by pianist Jonathan Biss, who will be featured at the Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival this weekend.  We'll also enjoy a classic interpretation of Brahms' Symphony No. 4 from the famously reclusive conductor Carlos Kleiber.
