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 be celebrating Schubrt's birthday all day today, with many of his most beloved pieces, including the "Trout" Quintet, and musical birthday cards from fellow composers, too.

As we count the days until the seasons change, tonight we'll enjoy Schumann's  Symphony No. 1, which he titled "Spring."

César Franck wrote his Violin Sonata in A as a wedding gift for a violinist friend, and it spans the years of a marriage from first love to the twilight of old age. This morning we'll enjoy a performance by cellist Misha Maisky.

Tonight we'll enjoy Max Bruch's Scottish Fantasy, inspired by the wild landscape of Scotland.

Beethoven's Violin Concerto had such a poor reception at its premiere, that a friend of his suggested it might have worked better as a piano concerto. History proved the friend wrong, and today we'll enjoy a performance with Viktoria Mullova as the soloist.
