Still Funny after All These Years: Haydn
Tune in Tuesday at 5 pm as Sir Simon Rattle conducts the Berlin Philharmonic, in a concert performance of Haydn's Symphony No. 90. Rattle loves all of it - including the joke at the end, which still gets a laugh when it's done right (and it is!). Also on the program: Nikolaus Harnoncourt conducts the Concertgebouw in Mozart's "Haffner" Symphony. Earlier, on Barney Sherman's program, Ivan Fischer conducts Beethoven's 7th and Richard Goode plays Mozart's 27th Piano Concerto.
