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.

It feels like we've had a taste of all four seasons during the last few weeks, so today we'll enjoy Four Seasons in Manhattan by contemporary composer Alexey Shor.

Cultural and technological changes were happening pretty fast even in the 18th century, which might by why Haydn prefaced his Symphony No. 64, "The Times Are Changed, and In Them Changed Are We." You can take a moment to reflect tonight.

Not even Franz Schubert's incidental music was enough to salvage the dreadful play Rosamunde, Princess of Cypress, which closed after just a few performances. We'll enjoy a suite from the play today.

Tonight we'll enjoy Alan Hovhaness' Fantasy on Japanese Woodblock Prints, inspired by the art of Hiroshige and his contemporaries.

Let Hector Ayala's Serie Americana written for guitarist David Russell take you on a tour of South America today, with stops in Bolivia, Argentina and Peru.
