Classical Music Highlights

From WSHU's daytime and evening classical programs, Kate Remington and Lauren Rico give you a heads-up on some of the best music they've selected.

Tonight you can enjoy Prokofiev's impression of a perfect summer day from a child's perspective with his Summer Day Suite.

It seems like there's nothing mandolin virtuoso Chris Thiele can't play! This morning we'll enjoy his performance of Bach's Solo Violin Sonata No. 2.

Tonight we'll enjoy Rachel Barton Pine's brand new performance of Elgar's Violin Concerto.

We'll bask in summer's heat today with the Summer Pastorale by Honegger, and enjoy Vaughan Williams' Symphony No. 5, which premiered during the summer Promenade Concerts in London.

Instead of learning to become a butcher, Dvorak spent his time in a neighboring town writing a symphony that captured the sound of its cathedral's bells.  We'll enjoy Dvorak's Symphony No. 1 tonight.
