Join us this Sunday at 2 PM for Brahms' radiant Second Symphony, written in a burst of creativity over just a few short months. Also on the program is Elgar's spirited Cockaigne Overture ("In London Town") drawing its character from the sometimes bawdy urban sounds of marching bands, church bells, and merry revelers.

And...Curtis graduate Jonathan Biss returns to perform Mozart's rarely heard Piano Concerto No. 13. Guest conductor Donald Runnicles will be on the podium, from a wonderful concert at Verizon Hall in late April. Don't miss it! Sunday, August 25, 2 to 4 pm on WRTI. Gregg Whiteside is host and producer.
