Classical Pacific, March14, 2019: What's In a Name II?


  Many works of Classical Music have associated names beyond just what type of pieces they are, and it can be interesting to see how those names came about. For a second day, I'm playing works with interesting titles or nicknames, and I'll give you a little information on them that might be useful as a conversation starter! By the way, Happy Pi Day.

Listen on the radio or join listeners around the world who stream HPR2 in one of two ways:

1. Go to Click on Programs, then HPR-2 Schedule, then find today's Classical Pacific link at 3pm. Information on each album will be displayed as the music plays, often with the cover of the album showing, too.

2. Go to the HPR App on your smart phone (you can download it for free, if you don't already have it). Choose HPR2. As the program plays, you'll see the information on each album, just as you do on the website.
