Wagner: Prelude to Act III of Lohengrin
Dvorak: Symphony No. 9
Gershwin: An American in Paris

Tonight's concert comes to you from just about the last place you would expect to find an American orchestra, especially when you consider that it's in a nation that we're technically still at war with. This week, we join the New York Philharmonic as they make their historic tour as the first-ever U.S. orchestra to visit and perform in North Korea. Read Lorin Maazel's North Korea blog.
