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 we'll spend some time io the woods with Schubert's Night Song of the Forest, and a symphony, In the Forest, by Joquim Raff.

When Paganini grew tired of life as a touring violin virtuoso, he took a break and taught himself to play the guitar.  So he'd probably approve of the version of his Violin Concerto No. 2 we'll enjoy today, with guitar soloist Nicola Hall.

Relax in the English countryside tonight with Herbert Howells' Pastoral Rhapsody.

When the women he was hoping to marry broke up with him, Dvorak recycled the love songs he had written for her into miniatures for string quartet. We'll enjoy his Cypresses today.

Beethoven never lost faith in the goodness of humanity, as we'll experience tonight with a performance of his monumental Symphony No. 9.
