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.

We'll enjoy music inspired by mountains today, including Vincent d'Indy's Symphony on a French Mountain Air, and an Appalachian folk song arranged by Robert Beaser for his collection, Mountain Songs.

Unlike Vienna, the city of Prague never tired of Mozart's music, and anything he wanted to premiere there was totally fine. Tonight we'll enjoy the Symphony No. 39, which had its first performance there.

Today Reynaldo Hahn whisks us back to Renaissance Florence to attend a lavish ball by one of the most stylish people of her era, Beatrice d'Este.
