Show 121 | New York City, New York

Recorded: Sunday, May 22, 2005

This show, presented by Young Audiences, features famed violinist Joshua Bell as our special guest. He performs the music of Ernest Chausson with a teenage string quartet, and you'll learn what he has in common with a young violinist nicknamed "The Master of Mischief." Also, you'll hear a teenage trio's stellar performance of Paul Schoenfield's Café Music and a young soprano's wonderfully fun rendition of the Doll Song from Offenbach's "The Tales of Hoffman."
