Viktoria Mullova Plays Prokofiev

Russian-born violinist Viktoria Mullova is 53 today.  We'll listen to her play the Violin Concerto No. 2 of Prokofiev.

We'll also listen to Elgar's Enigma Variations.  Read about the solution to the 'enigma.'

And we'll hear Ravel's Bolero.  Check out this flash mob Bolero at the Copenhagen train station.
