SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6TH
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
Regret is a powerful emotion, just as it was in the 1400s when the Franco-Flemish composer Josquin des Prez set a text about a thousand regrets to music. Josquin's anguished tune Mille Regretz swept through Europe like a fever, and we'll hear a multitude of settings, from plain to wild. Plus, we'll hear selections from a new recording by lutenist Hopkinson Smith.
Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
An Italian count, a Dutch diplomat, a Prussian king . . . They all loved music so much that they employed many of the top musicians of their day, and even composed music themselves. You can sample the noble art of some of these noblemen on this morning’s show.
Sunday at the Symphony – Luzerne Festival
Ivan Fischer conducts the Budapest Festival Orchestra in Romanian Folk Dances and The Miraculous Mandarin by Bela Bartok. From Antonin Dvorak, we hear the Legend #10 in B-flat minor for Orchestra, and the Symphony #8.
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, with Jim Cunningham
A new season of Pittsburgh Symphony Radio kicks off with The Year of the Dragon. Special guest Lang Lang performs in this gala concert, playing Franz Liszt’s Piano Concerto #1. Manfred Honeck conducts.
