A Little Night Music

Saturday at 10pm This week it's all about the night with a bit of moonlight thrown in for good measure. Join host Michael Kownacky as he looks at nocturnes by Sir Arnold Bax, Edvard Grieg, Edward German, and Samuel Barber along with pieces about the moon by Bright Sheng, Eric Siday, and Albert Ketelbey among others including some pieces from stage and screen.

Sunday Opera

Sunday at 3pm Los Angeles Opera This Sunday is the frist in our five opera series from LA Opera On-Air with a double bill, GIANNI SCHICCHI from IL TRITTICO by Giacomo Puccini has been paired with PAGLIACCI by Ruggiero Leoncavallo. Placido Domingo is appearing in the title role in SCHICCHI which is conducted by Grant Gershon. Domingo will change duties for the PAGLIACCI, and return as conductor for Marco Berti as Canio and Ana Maria Martinez as Nedda.

After the opera, join your host Michael Kownacky as he brings you non-operatic music by Leoncavallo, his symphonic poem for tenor and orchestra entitled La nuit de Mai featuring Domingo and pianist Lang Lang and the Piano Concerto of Jules Massenet. There'll also be a bit of operatic fun from Irving Berlin.
