APM's Performance Today

Weeknights, 7 - 9pm
Fred Child, Hosts

Performance Today is America's most popular classical music radio program, with more than 1.3 million weekly listeners on more than 260 stations around the country.

Performance Today features timely recordings that can't be heard anywhere else, recent performances by the great artists of our time and by the next generation of classical artists, from concert halls around the globe. Plus interviews and performances from the APM studios, and from concert stages around the country, along with classical music news and features. Every week composer Bruce Adolphe joins host Fred Child for a classical music game, the PT Piano Puzzler. Performance Today is based at the APM studios in Saint Paul, Minnesota, but is frequently on the road, with special programs broadcast from festivals and public radio stations around the country. And in 2006, Performance Today was live from Mozart's hometown of Salzburg, Austria for Mozart's 250th birthday celebrations.

The list of concert performers and studio guests on Performance Today is a Who's Who of the classical music world: the Vienna Philharmonic, the Berlin Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, the San Francisco Symphony, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Yo-Yo Ma, Martha Argerich, Gil Shaham, Midori, Itzhak Perlman, Joshua Bell, Pierre Boulez, John Adams, Simone Dinnerstein, Stephen Hough, Renee Fleming, Placido Domingo, Cecelia Bartoli, the Emerson Quartet, Sir Simon Rattle, Daniel Barenboim, Michael Tilson Thomas, Ravi Shankar, Emanuel Ax, Mitsuko Uchida and Richard Goode, to name just a few. Performance Today also highlights young American soloists with the potential for great careers as "Young Artists in Residence." PT is proud to count pianists Orli Shaham, Jeremy Denk, and Jonathan Biss, guitarist Jason Vieaux, and violinist Colin Jacobsen among our many former Young Artists.
