A June celebration — Part 2

Eric T. Williams
George Li performs Edvard Grieg's Piano Concerto with Michael Stern and the Kansas City Symphony in Helzberg Hall, October 2018.

Our June celebration continues as co-hosts Michael Stern and Dan Margolies highlight the birthdays of Robert Schumann and Edvard Grieg. We'll hear one of Schumann's earliest orchestral works, Overture, Scherzo and Finale, and Grieg's enduringly popular Piano Concerto. Topping things off, we'll listen to a June 2018 performance of Hector Berlioz's rousing Symphonie Fantastique.

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.
