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.

Gidon Kremer's Lockenhaus Festival runs for nine days this July, and as a preview, we'll enjoy a bit of tongue-in-cheek-music from a previous festival: Teddy Bor's Double Concerto for String Trio.

Dvorak and Janacek didn't have specific stories in mind for their Legends and Fairy Tale, so you can tell your own story as you enjoy both pieces tonight.

Dmitri Shostakovch was so impressed by a young woman's performance of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, that he wrote her a set of preludes and fugues of her very own. We'll enjoy one of them today.

Tonight's Carnegie Hall Live features music by Respighi, and Martha Argerich as the soloist in Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3, with the Santa Cecilia Orchestra conducted by Antonio Pappano.

Tonight Peter Maxwell Davies invites you to An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise. It'll be a wild, rustic time, complete with bagpipes!
