Back in keeping with our Anti-Road Rage Wednesday, here's a concert recorded live in Paris by Radio France on October 17th featuring violinist Amiram Ganz, violist David Gaillard, cellist Alexander Dmitirev and pianist Alexander Paley in a program of music by Russian Romantics, some of whom you may not be all that familiar with.
