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.

Paul Moravec says his "Northern Lights Electric" was inspired by an incredible display in northern New Hampshire. We'll enjoy it tonight.  

According to his friends, Mozart wrote a Clarinet Trio while he was relaxing and enjoying a game of skittles in a tavern.  We'll enjoy it this morning.   

Although they're mostly known for premiering music written for them, the Kronos Quartet traveled back in time for a performance of music from 14th Century French composer, Perotin. We'll enjoy it tonight.  

In order to give his guitar a fuller voice, Paul Galbraith added an end pin like a cello, and built a sounding box.  We'll hear how it sounds this morning.  

Because he was in invalid, Frederick Delius often used his nearby surroundings as inspiration for his music, as we'll hear tonight with his impression, "In a Summer Garden."
