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 look forward to warmer days with George Butterworth's song On the Idle Hill of Summer and Vaughan Williams' Symphony No. 5, premiered during London's summer Promenade concerts.

Give your spirits a lift today with Michael Torke's energetic Bright Blue Music.


Tonight we'll embark on a Mediterrean cruise, stopping in Palermo, Tunis and Valencia with Jacques Ibert's Escales. 


Today we'll spend some time in the aviary Respighi created by borrowing music from Baroque composers for his suite The Birds

Haydn's Symphony No. 43 is so light and swift it acquired the nickname Mercury.  We'll enjoy it tonight.
