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 enjoy Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings, inspired by Mozart's serenades.

Today we'll enjoy Gidon Kremer's updated version of Leopold Mozart's Toy Symphony, complete with the sounds of modern-day toys.

Robert Schumann began his Symphony No. 2 as therapy during a bout of severe depression.  When he finished it, he declared he felt like himself again.  We'll enjoy it tonight.
