Conductor Richard Egarr returns to lead the SPCO

Richard Egarr returns to lead the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra in a delightful program of works from London. Wonderful and surprising harmonies emerge from the strings in works by Henry Purcell and William Lawes. The program also includes Franz Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 101 (The Clock), which earned its nickname for the steady tick-tock accompaniment of the slow movement. Join host Steve Seel for YourClassical MPR’s live broadcast of the concert at 8 p.m. Saturday.
