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.

The Haffners were one of Salzburg's most influential families. For the wedding of their daughter, Elizabeth, they wanted music from Salzburg's most important composer.  Tonight we'll enjoy Mozart's "Haffner" Serenade.  

For his musical calendar, "The Seasons," Tchaikovsky wrote a special piece for each month, and this morning we'll enjoy a little paddle in a gondola for June. 

Sibelius traveled to Connecticut to conduct the premiere of one of his last pieces, "The Oceanides." We'll enjoy it tonight.

Today we'll head out west with Aaron Copland, and the Four Dance Episodes from his ballet, "Rodeo."  

This evening we'll enjoy Schubert's "Trout" Quintet, written while he was on a holiday at a friend's estate in the mountains near Vienna.
