Beethoven’s Birthday?

Stop by Classical 90.7 KVNO this Friday morning for a special tribute to Ludwig van Beethoven during the 10 o’clock Theme Hour.

While there is no authentic record of Beethoven’s birth date, there is a registry of his baptism on December 17, 1770.  Traditionally, children of that era were baptized the day after birth. Scholars commonly accept December 16, 1770 as Beethoven’s birth date.  At Classical 90.7 KVNO, it’s a day to commemorate!

You won’t want to miss Beethoven’s Symphony No. 07, with Georg Solti conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The Allegretto of the 7th Symphony was voted as the second favorite piece on Classical 90.7 KVNO Listeners Top 40.  Also featured will be the Fidelio Overture and music from the “Moonlight Sonata”, another Listener Favorite from the “Top 40.”

Respighi Goes Big for Modern Classics

In Uncategorized on December 1, 2011 at 1:55 pm

Join us for MODERN CLASSICS this Friday at 6 p.m. and enjoy a work of epic proportions from Ottorino Respighi.

While Respighi loved to imitate the masters from the Baroque and Renaissance, Respighi’s hour-long “Sinfonia Drammatica” has more in common with Mahler, Debussy and Ricard Strauss than Handel, Bach and Vivaldi. Ease, clarity and wit give way to emotion, color, and weight in this powerful work. Music by Duke Ellington will also be on this week’s program along with concertos by Barber and Prokofiev. Listen to it all right here on member supported Classical 90.7 KVNO.

Modern Classics can be heard every Friday night on KVNO from six until midnight and is sponsored by Andrea Malecki State Farm Insurance of Omaha.
