Classical Pacific, March 13, 2019: What's in a Name?


Today on Classical Pacific, musical works identified with nicknames or memorable titles. Sometimes the title identifies the intent of the composer, and/or is named by the composer. Sometimes the work gains a nickname that the composer had nothing to do with. From Jokes to Raindrops to Spinning, the possibilities are endless. I may include a small quiz!

Voting closes on March 15 for your favorite classical stars, to be featured during the next fund drive in April.. If you want to participate, go to the website,, and click on the box that says Classical Stars.
