HARMONIA (1700) is the third and final part of our tribute to the ensemble that started the early music movement in the US. We'll hear about the final years of the New York Pro Musica Antiqua and listen to music from one of the earliest fully staged baroque operas to be mounted in America. Plus, some music set to words by famous poets and a recent recording by Capella de Minstrers.

NIGHT LIGHTS (1800) features elegies —to Billy Strayhorn, Johnny Dodds, and two highly talented bassists who died young in the 1960s–Scott LaFaro and Albert Stinson. Pianist Randy Weston offers a general salute to artists who have passed, while Louis Armstrong wraps up the show with a rousing rendition of the spiritual “Bye and Bye” that namechecks lost legends of the swing era.

It's always a treat to hear conductor Andris Nelsons, one of the leading talents of his generation, but particularly when he's leading the performance of works by Strauss, whom Nelsons calls one of his favorite composers, alongside Wagner and Shostakovich. On Deutsche Welle's CONCERT HOUR (1300), we'll hear selections from Strauss' Violin Concerto in D minor, op. 8, but the centerpiece of the hour is the composer's tone poem Thus Spake Zarathustra, after a work by Nietzsche.

COLLECTOR'S CORNER (1400) dedicates a second program to Charles Villiers Stanford. Hear his Irish Rhapsody No. 4 "Fisherman of Loch Neagh", Intermezzi for Clarinet and Piano, and Symphony No. 5.

When people pass on, it’s customary at a funeral for friends, loved ones, and colleagues to pay tribute. When a great jazz musician passes on, other musicians have often paid tribute in a way that’s natural for them—by writing, playing, or recording compositions that serve as musical elegies for the departed. NIGHT LIGHTS (2100) includes tributes to Billy Strayhorn, Johnny Dodds, and two highly talented bassists who died young in the 1960s–Scott LaFaro and Albert Stinson. Pianist Randy Weston offers a general salute to artists who have passed, while Louis Armstrong wraps up the show with a rousing rendition of the spiritual “Bye and Bye” that namechecks lost legends of the swing era. ...

Richard Strauss is all over concert programs in 2014, which marks the 150th anniversary of the composer's birth. The opening to this year's Dresden Music Festival was no exception, pairing works by Strauss—who premiered some of his greatest works in the city—with music written by Richard Wagner. CONCERT HOUR (2000) offers the chance to hear outstanding conductors from three different generations active today. There's Daniel Barenboim (b. 1942) with the Staatskapelle Berlin, Christian Thielemann (b. 1959) leading the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra in a brief interlude in the program, and, finally, Andris Nelsons (b. 1978) at the podium with the West German Radio Symphony Orchestra. ...
