'Performance Today' at 20: A Look Back

Dec 12, 2012

For 20 years Performance Today has brought listeners to concert halls around the world to hear classical music. Vital performances in the present tense, played by the super-stars of our time and exciting young musicians just starting their careers.

Twenty years of programs, two hours a day, every day. That's a lot of notes--around 45-thousand performances, recorded in places as remote as alpine ski villages in South Korea, to the great cathedrals of music in Paris, to chamber music festivals in the hills of New Mexico, to NPR's own Studio 4-A.
