A sonic spectacular: wasps, birds, rivers and the organ in all its glory
Co-hosts Michael Stern and Dan Margolies celebrate the October birthdays of Ralph Vaughan Williams, Einojuhani Rautavaara, Charles Ives and Camille Saint-Saens. We'll hear the Grammy Award-winning Paul Jacobs as soloist in Saint-Saens' powerful "Organ Symphony."
