Another Concert Hall Curveball: Autocratic conductor Leopold Stokowski scolded the audience at a concert in New York in 1945. We'll tell you the tale and play a couple of Stokowski's marvelous Bach transcriptions. The International Sejong Soloists play the Air from the Orchestral Suite No. 3 and the Chorale Prelude "Jesus, O What Anguish," at the Sanibel Island Music Festival in Florida.
