Afternoon Classics - Thursday, March 4, 2010

Well, it is not everyday that one will have a need to turn things upside down, but today is just such a day. Due to the length of the Shostakovich Symphony No. 7 it just fits better if I place it up front in the first half of the program. Then once that is done we may celebrate the 331st birthday of Antonio Vivaldi!
