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.

Felix Mendelssohn felt Mary Stuart's spirit so strongly while visiting her chapel at Holyrood Palace that he was compelled to put all of his experiences of his visit to Scotland in his Symphony No. 3. We'll enjoy it tonight.  

There's a special kind of magic that happens when close family members make music together.  Today we'll enjoy a piano sonata Mozart wrote to perform with his sister, Nannerl.  

Tonight you can unwind in royal style as we enjoy the "Trios for the King's Bed-Time" from the court composer of Louis XIV, Jean-Baptiste Lully.  

Tchaikovsky chose some of his favorite pieces by Mozart and put his own spin on them for the suite, "Mozartiana." We'll enjoy it today.  

Aaron Copland takes us on a little trip to Hawaii tonight with his "Ukelele Serenade."
