The music world celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Juilliard Quartet today. Host Fred Child talks with the quartet's first violinist, Joel Smirnoff. And, from a 1987 Juilliard Quartet recording, we hear Bach's Contrapuncti Nos. 2, 7 and 9 from The Art of the Fugue. The recording features violinists Robert Mann and Joel Smirnoff, violist Samuel Rhodes and cellist Joel Krosnic. (The current second violinist is Ronald Copes.)
