Symphony Night

Monday evenings at 7 on KNAU Classical

Broadcast concerts from the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra will keep us musically stimulated through the winter months.  Music Director Ken-David Masur and guest conductors, including Edo de Waart and Jeffrey Kahane, lead us through a season of orchestral favorites—along with a few new musical nuggets. January 18th we’ll embark on a musical trip to Spain. January 25th presents an all-Beethoven program. Mozart’s Requiem is scheduled for February 8th and Russian composers will dominate three programs in March. In other words, Milwaukee isn’t just about beer.

Symphony Night is heard Monday evenings at 7pm on Classical KNAU with streaming and complete program listings at KNAU.org

BEGINNING APRIL  2021...

Los Angeles Philharmonic Broadcasts Return to Classical KNAU

Symphony Night continues this spring with a great season of concerts by the world-renowned Los Angeles Philharmonic beginning April 4 at 7pm.

Ordinarily, we’d say a “new season” but because most orchestral performances last year were cancelled because of the pandemic, we’ll head back into the archives for LA Phil’s 2019 season, which they’ve generously made available. For very good reason.

Seven world-premiere performances of LA Phil-commissioned works.  A galaxy of guest conductors and soloists including Zubin Mehta, Susanna Mälkki, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Yefim Bronfman and Yuja Wang. Orchestral favorites such as Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 and the first two symphonies by Brahms. Plus, an all-Stravinsky program.

Great classical music to make staying home a bit more enjoyable.  Symphony Night on Classical KNAU Monday evenings at seven. Streaming and complete program information at our website KNAU.org.
