Classical Pacific, Friday, March 9, 2018: Contrasts

Today will be a day of contrasts. I'm looking forward to exploring the richness of traditional and new works, well-known and lesser known works, and works with unique instrumentation. Composers featured will include Johann Stamitz, Franz Doppler, Beethoven, Steven Burke, Mendelssohn, Tom Cipullo, Mozart, Schumann, Alfred Schnittke, Bartók, Tan Dun, Haydn and Glazunov!
