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.

This morning we'll enjoy William Bolcom's whimsical "Graceful Ghost" Rag.  

Roy Harris grew up in Oklahoma, and his love of the West's wide open spaces inspired his music.  Tonight we'll enjoy his Violin Concerto.  

This morning we'll enjoy a live performance from the Waldbuhne, the summer home of the Berlin Philharmonic.  

Responding to critics who complained that Prokofiev's first piano concerto was too difficult, he fired back with second one twice as long and twice as hard!  We'll enjoy Yundi Li's performance tonight.  

After his ballet, "The Rite of Spring" caused riots, Stravinsky was expected to keep on writing avant-garde music.  His "Four Norwegian Moods" were criticized for not being modern enough.  We'll enjoy them this morning.
