Pianist Christian Zacharias--The Recently Formed Phila. Wind Symphony--A New Sibelius Symphony?

Jim Cotter speaks with the renowned German pianist Christian Zacharias.

Susan Lewis takes a look at The Philadelphia Wind Symphony. The recently formed ensemble is performing on March 3rd in Center City, Philadelphia.

As fragments of an unfinished Jean Sibelius masterwork come to light, David Patrick Stearns considers whether or not we're about to hear a new Sibelius symphony, more than half a century after the death of the great Finish composer.
