classiclectic

Monday through Friday from 9:35am to 12pm
  • Local Host Kurt Hauswirth

Stop us if you’ve heard any of these before: a Mozart piano trio for tubas; a progressive rock song performed with a harp as the main instrument; a singer mimicking the sound of a clarinet with an orchestra?  That, along with a healthy dose of well-known pieces, is the aim of ‘classiclectic’, an eclectic collection of classical music, on Public Radio 90.  Kurt Hauswirth hosts a journey through all corners of the classical music spectrum, from ancient to modern, exploring different styles, juxtapositions and unexpected surprises from Public Radio 90’s classical music library; the familiar and the uncommon to excite and charm your day. Chances are, you’ll never hear the same thing twice…or, at least not the same way.

Bergonzi String Quartet in Marquette

Jun 21, 2017

Kurt Hauswirth spoke with Scott Flavin, member of the Bergonzi String Quartet and playwright of the new work, "The Beethoven Project."  The project combines the music of Beethoven with the story of his life acted out, featuring two actors and the quartet on the same stage.  The group performed at the Peter White Public Library for a free children's concert, and  will perform at the Forest Roberts Theatre tonight in Marquette as a part of the Pine Mountain Music Festival.
