Music For The Living
Michael Stern returns as co-host for a program featuring music for our time, a classic concerto and a requiem for the living. We'll hear anthemic music by Jessie Montgomery and a concerto by Max Bruch with violinist Augustin Hadelich. Also, find out why Brahms' "A German Requiem" is a "desert island" piece for Michael Stern.
An agreement with the Kansas City Symphony allows us to share audio for this program up to four weeks after the program's original air date. You can listen to currently available episodes here.
