classical music highlights

Mark O'Connor said his goal in writing his Fiddle Concerto was to create a modern American version of those huge concertos by 19th century European composers. We'll enjoy it tonight.

Inpsired by Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" Concertos, Astor Piazzolla created his own impressions, and this morning we'll visit Buenos Aires in the spring.

For his Triple Concerto, Beethoven borrowed a page from Baroque-era composers, who wrote concertos for more than one soloist. We'll enjoy it tonight.

Brahms wrote his Clarinet Quintet for a fantastically talented virtuoso.  We'll enjoy it this morning.

Tonight we'll enjoy a suite Leonard Bernstein's score for the classic film "On the Waterfront."
