I'm sharing performances of Emmanuel Ax, Yo-Yo Ma and Friends throughout the program today. Two of the greatest artists of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century, they have performed and recorded together for thirty-four years.

Today I'll be featuring the artistry of flautist Aurèle Nicolet, pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy and violinist Joshua Bell, performing music by Debussy, Rejcha, Nielsen, Rachmaninov, Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, Wienazski and Saint-Saëns. As I have been profiling individual artists and ensembles for the past few days, I am grateful for their talent, their dedication to the study required to reach this leven of musicianship, and the technology that allows us all to hear their music years after they have performed it.
