12:00 P.M. Performance Today  To much of the audience sitting in the Champs-Elysees Theater in Paris, what unfolded before them was ghastly, unthinkable, an affront to the senses - like finding that someone laced your ice cream with jalapeno peppers.

This year marks the centennial of the ballet. We'll revisit that day in Paris 100 years ago, and the riot that ensued, and we'll hear a peaceful performance from New York City.

12:00 P.M. Performance Today  How often have you listened to a piece of music and thought, "What on earth was the composer thinking when he/she wrote that?"

12:00 P.M. Performance Today  Part of a conductor's job is to be a glorified traffic cop, to make sure the music doesn't come apart at the seams. But even more important than that, it's to be a leader and a unifier, to convey an artistic vision to the orchestra. If the first part of the job description seems better-suited to younger people, it's the second part that has historically swung the baton in favor of the senior generation. Krzysztof Urbanski is young conductor who seems to have both halves in good order. He leads the Indianapolis Symphony in Bedrich Smetana's suite, "Ma Vlast."

12:00 P.M. Performance Today  Johannes Brahms thought he was at the end. He was 58, convinced he was not only done with composing, but maybe even done with living. He put down his pen, got his affairs in order, said his goodbyes, and waited. But life sometimes does funny things just when you think you have it all figured out. Brahms met an amazing clarinetist, heard him play, and decided maybe there was some music left in him after all. Turns out, it was some of the most sublime music he ever wrote. We'll hear one of Brahms' autumnal works, his clarinet trio, from a concert at the Spoleto Festival.

And another musician who has come back from a devastating injury: violinist Peter Oundjian lost full use of his left hand due to a repetitive stress disorder. So he took up conducting. Oundjian leads the Toronto Symphony in excerpts from Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 4.

12:00 P.M. Performance Today  If you've ever had a shiny, brand new car, you may have found yourself volunteering to drive a lot more than you used to. Take the kids to soccer practice? Sure. Go pick up a loaf of bread? Love to. Johann Sebastian Bach was in pretty much the same place in 1719. He had just gotten a shiny, brand new harpsichord, and desperately wanted to take it out for a spin. So he wrote a flashy harpsichord part into the piece he was working on, his Brandenburg Concerto No. 5. We'll hear Bach's shiny new set of wheels, from a concert in Germany.

12:00 P.M. Performance Today  Today's show is a celebration of ambiguity, that delicious is-it-or-isn't-it uncertainty. In "ZZ's Dream," composer Osvaldo Golijov asks the question, "Am I a man dreaming I'm a butterfly, or am I a butterfly dreaming I'm a man?" We'll hear it from the Spoleto Festival. And from Dmitri Shostakovich, who could be maddeningly hard to pin down, we'll hear the final movement from his Fifth Symphony. Is it a celebration of the Stalinist regime, as the Soviets claimed? Or a subtly-encoded cry of opposition? And we'll hear from a man who makes his living being deliberately ambiguous. Bruce Adolphe has this week's Piano Puzzler.

12:00 P.M. Performance Today  The life of a concert artist can be a lonely one, not just socially, but artistically. That's why so many top soloists love playing chamber music as well. Two terrific young soloists recently joined host Fred Child for music and conversation, cellist Alisa Weilerstein and pianist Inon Barnatan. Weilerstein said this about Barnatan, "When you have a really great chamber musician, there's always just so much to bounce off of, to give back, and this is one of the most rewarding things about playing together." We'll hear their interview and excerpts from a Rachmaninoff cello sonata.

12:00 P.M. Performance Today  How many millions of kids have watched music videos and were absolutely sure that they were going to grow up to be rock guitarists? Probably just about every kid out there. Jordan Dodson was one of them. And like just about every other kid his age, he didn't grow up to be a rock-and-roller. But he did grow up to be a guitarist. And a fantastic one at that. Dodson switched from rock to classical when he was 16, and is now one of the top young guitarists of his generation.

12:00 P.M. Performance Today  The locals call it Fingal's Cave, a glittering cavern in a lonely outcropping off the coast of Scotland, where wind and sky, land and sea all come crashing together. Felix Mendelssohn had heard about it, and wanted to see it for himself, but he was a landlubber who was out of his element. He turned a particularly violent shade of green that day. Gustavo Dudamel demonstrates his sea legs, leading the Los Angeles Philharmonic in the "Hebrides Overture," inspired during Mendelssohn's trip to Scotland in 1829.

We'll hear performances by a bunch of twenty-somethings who have youthful energy and mature musicianship bursting from every pore: two soloists from the Van Cliburn Piano Competition, Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth, and the newest PT Young Artist-in-Residence, guitarist Jordan Dodson.
