Midday Music Playlist for 11/09/2010

Today: Itzhak Perlman in conversation with host Sarah Zaslaw. The violin virtuoso talks about answering fan questions on Facebook and recalls his appearances on Sesame Street, and we hear a new rerelease of him playing the Brahms Violin Concerto. That's just after the one o'clock news on GPB radio and gpb.org.
