Join co-hosts Michael Stern and Dan Margolies as they continue a birthday month celebration of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart paired with a celebration of composers also born in January: Josef Suk and Édouard Lalo. We'll hear the 17th and 20th piano concertos of Mozart, Suk's "Scherzo Fantastique," and Lalo's "Concerto in D Minor for Cello and Orchestra."
