BBC PROMS – LIVE PERFORMANCES

Beginning Monday, September 1, Classical South Florida will air  live performances from the BBC Proms daily at noon, and 11:00 pm.  Our final installment will air on Saturday, September 13th, at noon leading up to the Last Night of the Proms at Royal Albert Hall in London.

Every summer, the BBC Proms brings you an array of the world’s most exciting musicians. Soloists appearing will include Joshua Bell, Janine Jansen, Benjamin Grosvenor, and Jonathan Biss. Among the great conductors you’ll hear from are Bernard Haitink, Ivan Fischer and Sir Neville Marriner. We’ll will hear standards of the repertoire—for example, Ravel’s “Bolero,” Mozart’s Symphony No. 40, and Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1.  We’ll also hear orchestras from Iceland, Lapland, and Australia—truly a global celebration of classical music.

SANTA FE FRIDAYS – THE SANTA FE CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL

Every Friday this summer, tune-in and hear The Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival right here on Classical South Florida. The Festival is known for its enduring commitment to tradition, artistic excellence, innovation, and vision. In keeping with the Festival’s high standards, this radio series presents superbly recorded concerts and recitals by some of today’s great musical artists. This radio series draws performances from the most recent summer festival in Santa Fe, New Mexico, representing the Festival’s commitment not only to core repertoire, but to underperformed and newly-composed works.  And, on July 25th, hear Mendelssohn and Dohnányi for Strings featuring Miami String Quartet.
