Meet Juho Pohjonen, the pianist featured in our 7:30 p.m. SummerFest broadcast live from the Aspen Music Festival.


Upon hearing Beethoven's first two symphonies, you'd think they could very well be by two other great composers of the day, Mozart or Haydn, except that he put his very personal stamp on this music.


A look at Joseph Haydn's masterful string quartets, including a performance by the amazing Emerson String Quartet -- the featured performers on this Saturday's SummerFest broadcast.
