: A Little Night Music

Starry Night, painting by Vincent Van Gogh, 1889 Vincent Van Gogh

The nighttime has so many different moods, from passion to loneliness to the delicious tiredness you feel at the end of a long day. Whatever your favorite picture of the darkness, join us for today's show. We'll hear a thunderous performance of Sergei Rachmaninoff's "Variations on a Theme by Paganini," featuring pianist Stephen Hough, the quiet watchfulness of Dvorak's "Silent Woods" for cello and orchestra, and the warm and gentle embrace of "Nights in Bohemia," by Antonio de los Rios.
