classical music highlights

Because Britain's troops on the front lines during World War I were so under-prepared, concerts were organized in London to raise money to send much-needed supplies. This morning we'll hear Elgar's contribution to these Concerts at the Front: his ballet, The Sanguine Fan.

You can unwind a little bit before the weekend starts with Camille Saint-Saens' Havanaise, his take on a languid dance that originated in Cuba.

Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara once said he sensed angels all around him. Tonight we'll enjoy his symphony, Angel of Light.

This morning we'll enjoy Evermore by Paul Moravec, written as a wedding gift for violinist Maria Bachmann.

Tonight we'll spend time in the English countryside with Vaughan Williams' Symphony No. 3, the Pastoral.
