The Aspen Music Festival and School welcomes a new music director this summer. Robert Spano joined the festival after his predecessor resigned last year. Spano conducts the Aspen Festival Orchestra Sunday in Symphony No.5 by Gustav Mahler, and the Violin Concerto by Samuel Barber, featuring violinist Robert McDuffie. CPR Classical will carry that performance live, with host Monika Vischer. She talks with Colorado Public Radio's Mike Lamp.
