I hope you're making it a habit to stay up late on Wednesdays for our weekly Euro Classic on Classical Minnesota Public Radio.
You can catch the Euro Classic each week, just after midnight (so it's actually Thursday morning!) - a recent European concert performance, recorded live and made available exclusively to Classical Minnesota Public Radio listeners.
Tonight I'll feature a performance by Finnish baroque violinist Sirkka-Liisa Kaakinen and the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra playing the D Major Violin Concerto by Johann Agrell. The performance took place last June at the Rococo Theatre in Schwetzingen, Germany.
And there's another Euro Classic Saturday night (October 31st, in the 8:00 hour), as Bob Christiansen presents a performance of Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3 by Cedric Tiberghian and the Hong Kong Sinfonietta.
Add composer John Adams to the list of prominent musical bloggers. Go here to see his jottings on air travel, taking his pointer Eloise to the dog show, preparing a work for its world premiere, and more.
We have a member drive going on right now -- thanks to all our contributors!
