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.

Although he's primarily remembered as a film composer whose credits include Titanic and Avatar, James Horner wrote a double concerto for a brother and sister duo, just because they asked nicely.  We'll enjoy "Pas de Deux" this morning.  

"Perpetual Motion" pieces of music give performers a workout, and tonight we'll enjoy two of them, from Samuel Barber and Nicolo Paganini.  

Mozart remained a child at heart, and today we'll enjoy two of his pieces from a child's point of view: variations on a nursery song, and a child's complaint about winter.  

Frederick Delius ran away from his family home in England to work on his uncle's citrus plantation in Florida.  He sends us a postcard tonight with his "Florida Suite."  

In observance of the King holiday today, we'll pause to reflect on his legacy with the symphony "All Men are Brothers" by Alan Hovhaness.
