classical music highlights

Charles Ives' impression, 'The Housatonic at Stockbridge," was inspired by a quiet evening walk with his wife.  We'll enjoy it tonight.

George Gershwin's "Lullaby" will invite you to take some quiet moments to yourself this morning.    

The Haffners were one of Salzburg's most influential families. For the wedding of their daughter, Elizabeth, they wanted music from Salzburg's most important composer.  Tonight we'll enjoy Mozart's "Haffner" Serenade.  

For his musical calendar, "The Seasons," Tchaikovsky wrote a special piece for each month, and this morning we'll enjoy a little paddle in a gondola for June. 

Sibelius traveled to Connecticut to conduct the premiere of one of his last pieces, "The Oceanides." We'll enjoy it tonight.
