Every weekday at 10 a.m., the hosts at Classical MPR play a standout work based on the theme for the week. We call these works Morning Glories.
This week, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra inaugurates a new chapter in its history. The SPCO stays at the Ordway in downtown St. Paul, but now they'll be playing in the brand-new Concert Hall — a visually and acoustically striking space, specially designed to complement the sound and intimacy of a chamber orchestra. On Morning Glories, we'll join in the celebration with five SPCO performances, in recordings from the archive of Classical Minnesota Public Radio.
Stravinsky: Apollon Musagete
Mozart: Symphony No. 38 (Prague)
Beethoven: Symphony no. 5
Tune in tonight at 7:30, to hear the SPCO live from the new Concert Hall.
Vivian Fung: Violin Concerto
