St. Paul, Minn. — Every weekday morning at 10 a.m., the hosts at Classical MPR play a stand-out work based on the theme for the week. We call them Morning Glories. Fall is coming (the actual equinox is on Saturday, Sep. 22), so this week we're playing seasonal pieces: Vivaldi's "Autumn," and some others that may not be as familiar.
