Classical Pacific May 24, 2017
Welcome to Classical Pacific on Hawaii Public Radio HPR 2. I’m your host, John Kalani Zak.
Classical Pacific began in February, 2017, as a result of Hawaii Public Radio’s ongoing commitment to give listeners across Hawaii and around the world more of what they love, on two networks: HPR 1 and HPR 2. Airing five days a week at 3 P.M. Hawaii time, the series features the finest of the world’s classical music, while also shining a spotlight on orchestras, artists, and composers of the Pacific region, including Polynesia, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, The U.S., Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Russia, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia. We’ll also add spice with indigenous and World music that is creating new musical languages and collaborations worldwide.
On Wednesday, May 24th, we explore music of Haydn, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Poulenc, Tomassi, and Manuel Ponce. You’ll hear breathtaking performances by the CBC Vancouver Orchestra, The English Concert, the Boston Symphony, and a stunning solo performance by Eduardo Fernandez on Guitar.
