Inaugural Music

Just before Barack Obama was sworn in as America's 44th president this morning, violinist Itzhak Perlman, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, clarinetist Anthony McGill and pianist Gabriela Montero, performed the premiere of "Air and Simple Gifts," composed for the occasion by John Williams. Hear it again in an exclusive national radio broadcast on Wednesday's Performance Today, with Fred Child, from American Public Media - 12pm on KTXI and 6pm on KPAC.
