Happy Labor Day! Not heard today: "I've been working on the railroad," "Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go," or "It's been a hard day's night." But for your end-of-summer R & R we do have Lang Lang playing Schumann, Boston Baroque with Bach, Levine leading Wagner, Ferde Grofe's Hudson River Suite, a clappy part of Daniel Bernard Roumain's "Rosa Parks" Quartet, and Beethoven's Seventh with Benjamin Zander.
