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.

Bohuslav Martinu began his first symphony shortly after he arrived in America, and he worked on it while staying on Long Island, Middlebury, Vt., and Tanglewood. We'll enjoy it tonight.

Johan Strauss' waltz, Sounds from Boston, opens with a the sound of a fog horn in the harbor, and then takes on land for some dancing. We'll enjoy it today.

Tonight on Carnegie Hall Live Gustavo Dudamel conducts the Vienna Philharmonic in an all-Brahms program, featuring the Variations on a Theme by Haydn and the Symphony No. 1.

Multi-tasking may be hard for many of us, but not Mozart, it seems. He wrote his Trio, K. 498 in a tavern while playing a game of skittles. We'll enjoy it today.
