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.

We'll celebrate Hanukkah with a suite for piano trio by Scott Robinson: Great is the Miracle.

Alan Hovhaness had a lifelong love of nature, as we'll hear in his Sonata for Harp and Guitar, Spirit of Trees.

In the Middle Ages, it was thought that the four humors, or temperaments, controlled everything from your health to your attitude toward life. This morning we'll enjoy a symphony by Carl Nielsen inspired by these Four Temperaments.

Benjamin Britten was so moved by the emotion in  Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 that he was inspired to write his only piano concerto. We'll enjoy it tonight.

This morning we'll go on a little Sleigh Ride with Frederick Delius, and his charming piece that even includes the jingling of the harness bells on the horses.
