We're off to southeastern Europe for a Balkan first hour, sparked by the Cavatina Duo's new recording of Balkan-inspired music for flute and guitar, The Balkan Project. In the second hour it's Mozart with Columbus, Ga. native Gabriela Diaz, violin, and then off to the fairy-filled Shakespearean woods for midsummer Mendelssohn.
