Today we bring you an Interpretations of Music: Lessons for Life class featuring the Debussy Cello Sonata, performed by cellist Nitzan Gal and pianist Moriah Trenk.

Maestro Zander talks about the cultural context in which Debussy was composing and the distinctive language of French music. He coaches: "It's that world...where things were exploding...Audacious poetry is what we're looking for."

We send our warmest wishes to you and your loved ones this weekend. Happy listening!
