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.

As the day winds down, we'll enjoy Dave Brubeck's setting of "Dusk," a poem by Langston Hughes.  

Today we'll head out west with American Don Gillis as he shows us around his "Portrait of a Frontier Town."  

William Lawes' duties as a composer for Charles the First of England even included fighting during the English Civil War. Tonight we'll enjoy one of Lawes' Royall Consort Suites.  

This morning we'll enjoy new music from Michael Torke: his impression, "Three Manhattan Bridges," for piano and orchestra.   

Tobias Picker says his piece, "Old and Lost Rivers" was inspired by flying over the dry riverbeds in the Southwest.  We'll enjoy it tonight.
