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.

You can cool down this evening as we enjoy Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 1, Winter Dreams.

Eric Ewazen captures the grandeur of the Grand Canyon in his suite for nine french horns.  We'll enjoy it today.

We'll enjoy two works inspired by love tonight: Mahler's Symphony No. 5, written as a love letter to his wife, Alma, and a suite from Ravel's ballet, Daphnis and Chloe, in which Daphnis has to rescue Chloe from pirates.

Mussorgsky was devastated by the death of artist Viktor Hartmann, who was a close friend, so he gathered some of Hartmann's best paintings together in an imaginary exhibition, which we'll enjoy today.

Tonight we'll enjoy a performance from the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival of Seven Seascapes, written for the festival by Kevin Puts.
