Afternoon Classics - Tuesday, April 27, 2010

This is a day of ballets and symphonies well balanced by a trio and a quartet. Did you catch the letter in the Juneau Empire praising the production of "The Marriage of Figaro" by Juneau Lyric Opera in conjunction with Opera to Go? A great big pat on the back to JLO and to the citizens of Juneau! And the music for today is:

Piano Sonata No. 18 in D, K. 576 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart performed by Heidi Lowy - piano.
Piano Trio No. 3 in C minor, Op 1, No. 3 of Ludwig van Beethoven. The Beaux Arts Trio performing.
String Quartet No. 4, Op. 22 by Paul Hindemith performed by the Zehetmair Quartet (doesn't this sound reminiscent of Shostakovich is some ways?)
Symphony No. 5, D 485 by Franz Schubert, Sir Charles Mackerras conducting the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
Moment Musicaux, Op. 94, No. 1, D. 780 by Franz Schubert performed by Alfred Brendel - piano
Apollon Musagetes by Igor Stravinsky, the composer conducting the Columbia Symphony Orchestra
Three Places in New England of Charles Ives, Michael Tilson Thomas and the Boston Symphony Orchestra
Jeu de cartes (Card Game) by Igor Stravinsky. Igor Stravinsky himself conducting the Cleveland Orchestra
Symphony No. 4 by Walter Piston, Gerard Schwarz and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra once again.
