About the Program

Performance Today showcases live concerts by world-renowned classical musicians. You may experience the finest solo, chamber and symphonic works - not on CD, but in richly textured live performances recorded for broadcast. The program offers intriguing features, engaging and entertaining interviews and in-depth commentary by nationally known music experts to help listeners learn more about this vibrant art form and enjoy firsthand the creative vitality of the classical music world.

Next Show Until 2010, cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser had only played classical music. But not anymore! These days they're known as 2CELLOS, and they're a YouTube and worldwide sensation. On Friday's Performance Today, 2CELLOS will join Fred in the studio to discuss their classical training, their current tour, and more.
