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.

Robert Schumann poured his passion for his beloved wife, Clara, into his Piano Concerto. We'll enjoy it this morning.

Tonight we'll enjoy Eric Ewazen's Three Lyrics for trumpet and piano, inspired by the poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay.

After struggling for years to write a first symphony he was proud of, Brahms tossed a Second Symphony in very short order.  We'll enjoy it this morning.

Alan Hovhaness regarded mountains as sacred, half-way between heaven and earth. Tonight we'll enjoy his Symphony No. 2, "Mysterious Mountain."

Sometimes when he was on a tight deadline, Mozart recycled an earlier work into something new. He lopped off a few of the movements of his Posthorn Serenade to create the symphony we'll enjoy today.
