Wrap up your weekday with KDFC Tonight as Rik Malone explores a different theme each evening from 8 – 11. From What’s New Wednesdays to birthday celebrations, see what Rik has planned this week.
MONDAY: Classical Pride: Celebrating four centuries of LGBT composers!
TUESDAY: Violinist Nikolaj Znaider joins guest conductor Susanna Malkki and the San Francisco Symphony for one of today’s most popular concertos, that was deemed unplayable by the very people for whom it was written. You’ll also hear music inspired by the early history of film, and a piece written in 908 that became the soundtrack for the first manned space flight and the psychedelic 60s.
WEDNESDAY: …In a Handbasket! Off to the underworld with Offenbach, Berlioz, Liszt, Tartini and more.
THURSDAY: Unplayable: Two concertos and a symphony that were rejected by the people who first tried to play them.
FRIDAY: Blowing in the Winds: shining the spotlight on the Flute, Clarinet, Oboe and Bassoon.
