WCPE FM Offers Birthday Tribute to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

On our next Monday Night at the Symphony we'll spend an evening with the Minnesota Orchestra. We'll hear music of Ravel, Rachmaninoff, Beethoven and Bartok in classic performances from the WCPE music library.

Listen each week as we showcase a great orchestra on Monday Night at the Symphony, Mondays at 8 p.m. (Eastern) on WCPE, 89.7 FM, and TheClassicalStation.org.

Rachel Barton Pine

Violinist Rachel Barton Pine helped us kick off our three-day Mozart Madness musical celebration this Sunday with a short discussion of her new album Mozart: Complete Violin Concertos; Sinfonia Concertante. The two-disc set recorded with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields and conductor Sir Neville Marriner includes the complete Mozart Violin Concertos with Pine's own cadenzas. Pine also reveals herself to be a capable writer and researcher in the liner notes she also created for this collection released January 13 on the Avie record label.

WCPE thanks Dr. Anatoly Larkin and the Town of Cary for their partnership in proving a musical afternoon at the Cary Arts Center on January 18. We are grateful for the enormous show of support we received from the public who filled the house and lobby. The audience included over four hundred and fifty music lovers of all ages. Due to the popularity of this concert, Dr. Larkin has generously allowed WCPE to make his corresponding radio program, which aired on January 17, available for streaming.
