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.

Mozart was just a teenager when he wrote his five violin concertos.  Today we'll enjoy Hilary Hahn's new performance of the Concerto No. 5.

Join us for a Saint Patrick's Eve celebration tonight with Four Irish Dances by Percy Grainger, and Amy Beach's Suite on Irish Themes for Two Pianos.

They say everyone's Irish on Saint Patrick's Day, so that includes Beethoven, who wrote variations on Irish folk songs. We'll enjoy them today, and lots of other Irish music for Saint Patrick's Day.

Tonight we'll visit the castle on Cornwall's rocky coast where, according to legend, King Arthur was born, in Arnold Bax's impression, Tintagel.

As a very special anniversary gift, the owners of the Dumbarton Oaks estate commissioned Stravinsky to write them a unique piece of music.  We'll enjoy the concerto he wrote today.
