Four great concertos make up today's show. The electrifying pianist Lang Lang teams with the Berlin Philharmonic in Prokofiev's 3rd. One of Weber's two clarinet concertos is new from Bridge Records
. And two of the four greatest German violin concertos come from violinists Tasmin Little (Bruch) and Rachel Barton Pine (Mendelssohn). We'll hear the Brahms and Beethoven another time.
