Afternoon Classics - Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Today there are two parts to the show. The first is a somewhat war-like program with stories about soldiers, battles and camps. The latter half is much more spiritual with visions which become paintings which are translated into music. We will begin it all with Mr. Mozart.
Symphony No. 31 in D, KV 297 "Paris", Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; Sir Neville Marriner and The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.
String Quartet in C minor, Op. 18, No. 4 by Ludwig van Beethoven performed by The Cleveland Quartet.
Wellington's Victory by Ludwig van Beethoven. Antal Dorati and The London Symphony Orchestra.
The Soldier's Tale - Suite, Igor Stravinsky. Igor Stravinsky and the Columbia Symphony Orchestra.
Nobilissima Visione (from the Ballet St Francis) by Paul Hindemith. Herbert Blomstedt and the San Francisco Symphony.
Church Windows by Ottorino Respighi. Jesus Lopez-Cobos conducting the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
Mathis der Mahler by Paul Hindemith. Once again Herbert Blomstedt and the San Francisco Symphony.
Symphony No. 6, Op. 173 "The Celestial Gate" by Alan Hovhaness. Rudolf Werthen conducting Il Fiaminghi.
In a Monaster Garden by Edward Ketelbey. Eric Rodgers conducting The Royal Philharmonic.
And that is today's program - see you tomorrow
