Music critic Tom Manoff comments on composer Antonin Dvorak's Violin Concerto and its connection to a childhood memory. A recent confluence of events brought back a forgotten moment: While driving in the Pacific Northwest and seeing airplanes take off near the Pearson Air Museum, listening to violinist Sarah Chang's rendition of the concerto, he remembered a similar experience many years before.
