Lakes Area Music Festival

SymphonyCast - May 22, 2023


May 22, 2023

This week on SymphonyCast, the featured music is about an abstract place that isn’t physical. It’s more about the intangible spirit of a region, its people or both. Host Steve Seel invites you to explore these feelings with him as he explores Bedrich Smetana’s tribute to his homeland, The Moldau, and Finnish nationalist Jean Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2.

Hour 1

SMETANA: The Moldau

JIMMY LOPEZ-BELLIDO: Pago a la tierra


Hour 2

SIBELIUS: Symphony No. 2
