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.

One of the pieces that got Alexander Glazunov's career as a composer off to a great start was his Violin Concerto.  We'll enjoy a performance featuring Leila Josefewicz tonight.  

This morning Aaron Copland shows us around the fictional New Hampshire town of Grovers' Corners with his film score, "Our Town." 

John Adams said that his "Guide to Strange Places" is inspired by a quirky French guidebook he found in a dusty old bookstore. We'll enjoy it tonight.  

This morning we'll look forward to fall's cooler days with the "Cantos for the End of Summer" by Gwyneth Walker, and Grieg's overture, "In Autumn."  

In Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, a poet's love for a singer turns to obsession and murder. It's on the program tonight.
