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.


Winning the Geneva International Music Competition catapulted flutist Emmanuel Pahud to international fame. This morning we'll enjoy his award-winning performance.

John Adams says his "Guide to Strange Places" is inspired by a quirky travel book he picked up in a French bookstore. He'll show us around tonight.

Brahms decided to leave the violins OUT of his Serenade No. 2, just as an interesting challenge.  We'll enjoy the result this morning.

Tonight we'll glimpse the darker side of romance with the Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz, which tells a tale of romance that turns into obsession.

Today we'll hear about Benjamin Britten's summer vacation, which included a little sailing and a visit to a fun fair in his "Holiday Diary."
