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.

American composer Norman Dello Joio said his Piano Sonata No. 3 from the 1940's is "the one everybody plays"  We'll find out why this morning.  

The relaxed mood of Schubert's "Trout" Quintet might be because he wrote it on an extended vacation in the mountains near Vienna.  We'll enjoy it tonight.  

Our Mid-Day Mozart selection for today is a concerto for piano and violin, reconstructed by Philip Wilby from sketches Mozart left behind.  

Listening to Debussy's suite, "La Mer," is like spending a relaxing day at the ocean. We'll enjoy it tonight.

Although he spends most of his time these days conducting orchestras around the world, Daniel Barenboim returned to his musical roots as a pianist for a new recording of Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1.  We'll enjoy it this morning.
