classical music highlights

Haydn's Symphony No. 55 is known as "The Schoolmaster," because of its earnest tone.  We'll enjoy it this morning, and get in the mood for "back to school."  

Tonight we'll enjoy Leonard Bernstein's "Prelude, Fugue and Riffs," written for jazz great Woody Herman.  

Dvorak captures the sound of this country in his "American Suite." We'll enjoy it this morning.  

One of the pieces that got Alexander Glazunov's career as a composer off to a great start was his Violin Concerto.  We'll enjoy a performance featuring Leila Josefewicz tonight.  

This morning Aaron Copland shows us around the fictional New Hampshire town of Grovers' Corners with his film score, "Our Town."
