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.

Tonight's First Fridays in Concert features performances of Beethoven's "Eroica" Symphony by the Stamford Symphony Orchestra,  and a Brahms Serenade by the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival.

Aaron Copland's comforting, cozy piece, "Letter from Home" was included in a radio broadcast for US troops serving overseas in World War 2.  We'll enjoy it today.  

Leonard Bernstein wrote his thougthful nocturne,  "Halil" in memory of a young Israeli flutist who was killed in battle.  You can listen in tonight.  

Chopin wrote most of his music for solo piano, but this morning we'll enjoy a sonata he wrote for a good friend who was an accomplished cellist.  

Tonight we'll enjoy Rodrigo's Concierto para una Fiesta, as well as festive music by Pablo Moncayo and Chick Corea.
