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.

Morton Gould wrote his American Symphonette during an era when lots of things were slightly small than regular size, including dinettes and luncheonettes. We'll enjoy it today.

Tonight we'll look to the heavens, as we enjoy Bartok's piece for children, Stars, Stars Brightly Shine and Holst's suite, The Planets.

This morning Joshua Bell takes us to Scotland as we enjoy his new performance of Max Bruch's Scottish Fantasy with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.

Osvaldo Golijov says the inspiration for his suite, Oceanea, was a visit to the Hayden Planetarium and seeing how all the continents of different cultures are united by the planet's oceans. We'll enjoy it tonight.

Some of the musicians in the Montreal Symphony Orchestra had some free time, so they organized a chamber ensemble. Today we'll enjoy their performance of Beethoven's Septet.
