Manfred Honeck's Musical Journey

The Austrian-born conductor Manfred Hoeneck has led a storied life. His first exposure to music was through learning folk music on the traditional mid-European lute, the zither. As WRTI's Jim Cotter reports, his journey onward from the Vienna Philharmonic to Pittsburgh and beyond is reflected in a favorite symphony by a composer the conductor regards as a fellow traveler.
