Les Violons du Roy will be at Zankel Hall on Sunday, February 26th, but you can hear them here this evening, counterpointing their way through selections from Bach’s "Art of the Fugue."

Violist Kim Kashkashian, who plays at the 92nd Street Y on February 21st and 22nd, is joined this evening by pianist Robert Levin for a stunning performance of Brahms Viola Sonata No. 1 in F Minor. Another performer you might want to experience live at Carnegie Hall on the 23rd and 25th is pianist Andras Schiff: we give you his recording of the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 14 in E-flat tonight, as a goad to get going to Carnegie Hall.

Lovers of the Wild West will enjoy our last hour, when the San Francisco Symphony plays Copland's "Rodeo" under Michael Tilson Thomas, followed by pianist Richard Zankars' traversal of the "Streets of Laredo" by Roy Harris.
