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.

Today we'll go on a guided tour of the Pines of Rome with a suite by Respighi.

Even Aaron Copland needed a break from time to time while he was working in Mexico. We'll enjoy his impression of his favorite taverna today.

Today we'll enjoy a piano trio by Beethoven that includes a little melody he may have thought up while on a walk and couldn't get out of his head.

One of the common suggestions for how to pass the time in social isolation is to learn a new instrument, which is exactly what Paganini did at a villa in Tuscany.  We'll enjoy one of the pieces he wrote for his new instrument, the guitar, today.

Today we'll enjoy Mark O'Connor's sunny suite written in tribute to the American folk legend Johnny Appleseed.
