Music series around Georgia start up in earnest in a few weeks, and I'm compiling a master calendar of events to mention on air over the course of the year. Please mail or e-mail me your press releases (GPB, 260 14th Street NW, Atlanta GA 30318; so we know about your community's major classical concerts. Thanks!

Today on air: a lesser-known Bruch violin concerto with James Ehnes, royal Lully with Jordi Savall, heartrendingly sublime final Schubert with thirty-something British pianist Paul Lewis, and Mozart with Christian Zacharias and friends.
