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.

Respighi loved his time in Brazil, and he sends us a postcard of his trip with his Brazilian Impressions. We'll enjoy it today.

Tonight we'll enjoy Peter Warlock's Autumn Twilight, and the Autumn Song from Tchaikovsky's musical calendar, The Seasons.

On First Fridays in Concert tonight, we'll enjoy a live performance of Mozart's Piano Quartet No. 2 from the Yale School of Music, and a piece by Eric Ewazen written for the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival.

Dissatisfied with the direction contemporary music was heading in the 1920's, Respighi delved into the Renaissance and Baroque for his suites of Ancient Airs and Dances.  We'll enjoy the Second Suite tonight.

Tonight we'll head into the woods to enjoy Schubert's Night Song in the Forest, and Joachim Raff's Symphony No. 3, In the Forest.
