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 Stravinsky's ballet, Jeu de Cartes (Card Game), which he describes as "a ballet in three deals, and the joker makes an appearance each time. 

Today we'll enjoy some homespun music with the Quilters' Dance; it's one of the Harvest Dances by Don Ray.

Twilight is arriving earlier and earlier, and tonight we'll enjoy two atmospheric pieces for fall: Tchaikovsky's Autumn Song and Autumn Twilight by Peter Warlock.

Even if you have to spend the day indoors, we'll bring the countryside to you with Emanuel Chabrier's Suite Pastorale.

We'll take a little road trip tonight with Vally Pick Weigl's New England Suite, which visits the Berkshires, Vermont, Maine and a Connecticut country fair.
