St. Paul, Minn. — It's the sound of this ensemble that will catch your ear and not let go.

Pianist Menahem Pressler, the original and only pianist with the legendary Beaux Arts Trio, shows no sign of slowing down as he performs with younger colleagues.

In this week's Regional Spotlight is a performance of the lesser known Piano Quartet in Eb by Mozart.

Pressler and friends' performance will make you fall in love with it. They clearly have.
