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.

Osvaldo Golijov says the inspiration for his choral piece, Oceana, was a visit to the Haydn Planetarium and seeing how all the continents with different cultures are connected by the world's oceans. We'll enjoy it tonight.

Johann Sebastian Bach continued his family's musical legacy by teaching his sons how to perform and compose. This morning Simone Dinnerstein performs one of his teaching pieces: The Keyboard Partita No. 1.

We'll celebrate Bastille Day tonight with an all-French playlist of favorites by Debussy, Poulenc, Ravel and more.

We've got a little Shakespeare festival planned for today, with impressions of some of his most interesting heroines by Josef Foerster, and a suite from Henry V by William Walton.

We'll have a front row seat under the Big Top tonight with The Pageant of P.T. Barnum by Douglas Moore and Stravinsky's Circus Polka.
