Midday Music Monday 10/13/08

Quick note on a couple of live-in-Georgia programs on GPB Radio that you might enjoy.

  • Tonight at 9:00 on Savannah Music Festival Live, hear the husband-and-wife team of cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han, in performance in Savannah last spring.
  • Thursday evening at 9:00, GPB is pleased to present a special broadcast of the superlative Cleveland Orchestra recorded at their March 30 concert in Columbus, Georgia. Giancarlo Guerrero (the new music director of the Nashville Symphony) leads the Cleveland Orchestra in Roberto Sierra's Fandangos, Ravel's Daphnis and Chloe Suite No. 2 and Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. Please listen in.
