Classical Music Highlights

From WSHU's daytime and evening classical programs, Kate Remington and Lauren Rico give you a heads-up on some of the best music they've selected.

We'll visit Spain tonight with Debussy's impression, "Iberia," from his Images for Orchestra.

Prokofiev's first piano concerto drew fire because of its difficulty, so he followed it up with a second, twice as long and twice as hard! Vadym Kholodenko tackles it this morning.

We'll bring our spring-like weather indoors tonight with Debussy's impression, "Printemps."

Italy has provided inspiration to composers for centuries and this morning we'll hear how it influenced Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn.

Jazz legend Benny Goodman was one of the first crossover artists, and tonight we'll enjoy his performance of the jazzy concerto Aaron Copland wrote for him.
