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.

Rachel Barton Pine describes the viola d'amore as a "finger- and brain- twister" because of its extra strings and tunings.  We'll sample a Vivaldi concerto from her new album today.

Rick Sowash's "Daweswood Suite," written for a botanical garden, takes its cue from the life cycle of flowers.  We'll enjoy it today.  

Stravinsky's ballet, "Card Game," features a persistent Joker, who appears at every deal.  We'll enjoy it tonight.  

Travel doesn't have to be stressful if you let John Corigliano take you away with his "Voyage" for Flute and Strings.  We'll enjoy it this morning.  

We'll picnic in a sunny meadow, and scale the summit of a lofty mountain tonight with Richard Strauss' "An Alpine Symphony."
