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.

Listening to the Bagatelles for String Quartet by Alan Hovhaness is like spending time in a Zen garden.  We'll enjoy them this morning.  

Tonight we'll enjoy Carl Nielsen's exotic music for a production of "Aladdin."  

Prokofiev captures the perfect day from a child's point of view in his suite, "A Summer Day."  We'll enjoy it this morning.  

Osvaldo Golijov says his piece, "Oceana," from 2004 was inspired by seeing an image of Earth from space, and realizing that the continents all share a connection with the ocean.  We'll enjoy it tonight.  

An astute audio engineer just happened to have the tape recording running during a warm-up session with guitarist Christopher Parkening, and captured a performance of Gordon Young's "Prelude in Classic Style."  We'll enjoy it this morning.
