The Hungarian Dances by Johannes Brahms were never really intended for dancing. But that doesn't mean that people in Hungary don't dance! Richard Graber, the director of a Hungarian dance company in Cleveland, talks with Naomi Lewin about Hungarian dancing.
Tonight we explore the many avenues of listening to ourselves and allowing others to look in. On the program are works by Barber, Scarlatti and Tibetan composer and singer Yungchen Lhamo.
