Classical Conductors & Composers with Earl Ofari Hutchinson

Classical Conductors & Composers

with Earl Ofari Hutchinson

Saturdays at 10 am




Bach, Handel, Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, Berlioz, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Mahler, Strauss, Rachmaninoff, Shostakovich, Schumann, Sibelius, Vivaldi, Schubert, Strauss, Wagner, and many more are the recognized master composers in classical music. Unfortunately, they increasingly are taking a backseat in classical music programming to pop, film, new age and wave music and composers.

Classical Conductors & Composers  with Earl Ofari Hutchinson on Pacifica Radio will change that. The Saturday show will feature the greatest composers and their greatest works with the greatest orchestras. The Classical masters such as: Toscanini conducting the Beethoven 5th, Leinsdorf conducting the Mozart 41 (Jupiter), George Solti conducting the Brahms 1 and so on.

The music will be continuous for the hour with commentary and interesting factoids on the conductors and the featured works throughout.

A unique feature of the show will be listener call ins.

Classical music lovers and others can comment on the works and the composers.
