Tonight's Euro Classic comes from that transitional time between the baroque and classical periods. Johann Stamitz (Carl's dad) was a hot commodity in the 1740s, and you'll hear one of the symphonies he composed during his early days as music director at the Mannheim Court.
Be listening just after midnight (12:06am Thursday) on Classical Minnesota Public Radio for a performance recorded live last June in Schwetzingen, Germany featuring the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra.
Saturday night, just after 8:00, there's another Euro Classic. The WDR Symphony Orchestra performs Rameau's Les Boreades Suite, from a concert recorded live last July in Wurzburg.
These exclusive recordings are heard one time, and one time only - so be sure to check out our Euro Classics this week.
