    Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless [#902H] Oaxaca's Live-Fire Cooking Everything tastes better cooked over a wood or charcoal fire - at least that's the Oaxacan credo. From soup to barbacoa, burning embers influence the flavor of Oaxaca's food in just the right ways. For starters, Rick guides us through the "taco corridor" at the 20 de Noviembre market just off the main square in Oaxaca. We can almost taste the richly-burnished chiles and onions as they grill alongside super-thinly sliced beef and pork and robust chorizo sausages. Then we see hot rocks plucked from the glowing embers and dropped into hot soup for making caldo de piedra (stone soup), a specialty from the village of San Felipe Usila.
    La Capilla, a campestre (open air) restaurant, in the town of Zaachilla, has served lamb and goat barbacoa for more than 47 years. Rick's so enamored with the process of burying the chile-seasoned meat in glowing embers that he creates his own version on the backyard grill. Served with Oaxacan pasilla tomatillo salsa, there's meat, fire and smoke in every bite.

    Note By Note (The Making of Steinway L1037) This program follows the creation of a Steinway concert grand, #L1037 - from forest floor to concert hall. It explores the relationship between musician and instrument, chronicles the manufacturing process and illustrates what makes each Steinway unique in this age of mass production. From the factory floor in Queens to Steinway Hall in Manhattan, each piano's journey is complex - spanning 12 months, 12, 000 parts, 450 craftsmen, and countless hours of fine-tuned labor. It is a celebration of not just craftsmanship, but of a dying breed of person who is deeply connected to working by hand. In the end, it reminds us how extraordinary the dialogue can be between an artist and an instrument - crafted out of human hands but borne of the materials of nature. The film features interviews and performances with a number of world-class artists including Lang Lang, Helene Grimaud, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Harry Connick, Jr., Hank Jones, Marcus Roberts, Kenny Barron and Bill Charlap. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Great Performances [#3512] Renee Fleming & Dmitri Hvorostovsky: A Musical Odyssey in St. Petersburg American soprano Renee Fleming travels to Russia for a special visit to St. Petersburg with her friend and frequent co-star, Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky. There in the "Venice of the North," they explore and perform in some of the most spectacular locations of a city that was born in the remarkable mind and imagination of the young Czar Peter the Great (a city that he named not for himself, but for Saint Peter). St. Petersburg is a city of palaces, and Fleming and Hvorostovsky take in three of the most memorable, all of them on the water. First is the Winter Palace, also known as the Hermitage, built with one entire facade facing the Neva River. Next on the tour is the Yusupov Palace (the scene of Rasputin's murder); and lastly, the Peterhof with its fantastic fountains on the Gulf of Finland. In each location, they sing arias and duets by Verdi and Tchaikovsky, as well as the Russian songs of Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVG
