classical music highlights

Eduard Tubin left all his manuscripts behind when he fled his native Estonia to escape the Nazi invasion. Tonight we'll enjoy his Estonian Dances, which he re-wrote from memory from the safety of Sweden.

With the start of a new schoolyear looming, today we'll enjoy a symphony by Haydn, known as The Schoolmaster, because of its stern character.

Frederick Delius spent time at his uncle's citrus plantation.  Tonight he sends us a postcard with his Florida Suite.

Today we'll enjoy a suite by Gerald Finzi written for a BBC Radio production of Shakespeare's Love's Labours Lost.

Tonight we'll enjoy a little holiday beside the seaside with Debussy's Suite, La Mer, and Vivaldi's concerto, The Storm at Sea.
