Happy New Year from DPR!
Join us this New Year's Day on WSCL, 89.5 for some special programming to ring 2014.
At 11AM, the Vienna Philharmonic presents its annual salute to the waltz on New Year's Day 2014. The orchestra has invited Daniel Barenboim to welcome 2014 by conducting the annual New Year's year's concert, honoring his 25 years of musical collaboration with the orchestra, and his efforts to bring peace to the world through music. Hear the hit tunes of the Strauss family and others -- polkas, gallops and waltzes, live from the Musikverein, on New Year's Day from Vienna. Hosted by Laura Carlo of WCRB Classical New England, a service of WGBH.
at 3PM, we bring you "The History of Classical Music". Through an engaging narrative, host Dianne Nicolini of KFDC and renown conductor Robert Ziegler tell the story of classical musical, episode by episode, from Gregorian chants to today's minimalism, highlighting innovations and developments and profiling the lives and works of groundbreaking composers.
Happy New Year!
