We're spending the week at this summer's Aspen Music Festival in Aspen, Colorado. In today's visit, a husband-and-wife pair joins Fred Child on stage at Harris Hall. Pianist Wu Han and cellist David Finckel open with a short piece by Alexander Borodin called "Serenata." Then, violist Masao Kawasaki and violinist Lev Polyakin join Finckel and Han onstage for the closing movement of the Piano Quartet by William Walton.
