classical music highlights

Today Darius Milhaud shows us around his home turf with his "Suite Provencal," and we'll enjoy Connecticut composer Gwyneth Walker's "Four American Songs" for guitar.  

Luciano Berio re-assembled some of the sketches Schubert left behind in his modern take on the "Unfinished" Symphony: "Schubert's Renderings for Orchestra."  We'll enjoy it tonight.    

We'll travel along with Aaron Copland today as he takes us "Down a Country Lane."

Tonight we'll enjoy Puccini's classic aria, "How cold your little hand is!" from La Boheme, and an earlier piece that includes other melodies he used in his beloved opera.  

Brahms gave himself an interesting challenge when he wrote his Serenade No. 2.  It doesn't include any violins! No trumpets or trombones, either.  We'll hear what's left this morning.
