Morning Glories: Dies irae

October 29, 2012

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. This week brings us Halloween, All Saints' Day, Dia de los Muertos, et cetera, and our Morning Glories will all allude to the medieval chant known as the Dies irae ("day of wrath") — sometimes subtly (Haydn), sometimes not so much (Berlioz).

Monday

Hector Berlioz — Symphonie fantastique

Tuesday

Joseph Haydn — Symphony No. 103, "The Drumroll"

Wednesday

Franz Liszt — Totentanz

Thursday

Camille Saint-Saëns — Symphony No. 3 (Organ Symphony)

Friday

Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky — Manfred Symphony
