'Red Violin' to Debut in Baltimore

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra plans to perform American composer John Corigliano's "The Red Violin" -- a concerto for violin and orchestra -- Thursday. The debut will feature one of the leading violinists in classical music, Joshua Bell. The concerto uses themes from Corigliano's Academy Award-winning score for the film of the same name. NPR's Lisa Simeone has a profile.
