Off to Norway for Roman Festivals

Stay up late tonight (12:05am, Thursday) with Classical MPR for a performance of Respighi's Roman Festivals, the final part of his spectacular trilogy of symphonic poems celebrating the Eternal City. Respighi wanted this piece to be big, bold and stand out from the crowd. So it's off to Olav Hall in Trondheim for a performance recorded live last September with the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra and conductor Josep Caballe-Domenech.

Saturday night (just after 8pm), Classical MPR heads to Madrid for a performance of the Bizet Symphony in C featuring the RTVE Symphony Orchestra and conductor Adrian Leaper,

The exclusive Euro-Classic concerts are heard twice-weekly on Classical MPR.
