SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 9TH
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
This morning’s show takes you on a musical tour of Madrid, a city where Roman, Visigothic, Jewish, Moorish and countless other traditions converged. We'll also celebrate the spirit of Armenia on a featured recording by Hesperion XXI that showcases the talents of Armenian musicians.
Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
Musicians can be inspired by love and loss, art and literature, the seasons and nature. They’re also often inspired by places, from their travels or the places they dream of visiting -- the sights and sounds of exotic, faraway places, as well as home sweet home. This morning’s show explores some musical geography.
Sunday at the Symphony
The Simon Bolivar String Quartet performs Alberto Ginastera’s String Quartet #1, the Shostakovich String Quartet No. 8, Ravel’s String Quartet in F, and Bach’s Contrapunctus 17 from The Art of Fugue.
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, with Jim Cunningham
Leonard Slatkin conducts Sergei Prokofiev’s Symphony #5, and The B-Sides by last season’s Composer of the Year, Mason Bates. Emanuel Ax is soloist in Mozart’s popular Piano Concerto #25.
