July’s Program-Gortinia’s Classical Classics 1: Morning and Evening

Whether depicting the rising of the morning sun, the gathering of clouds, or the reflection of light from the moon, composers of all eras have been inspired by the beginning and the end of the day. This evening we feature Edward Grieg’s famous Morning Music from Peer Gynt Suite, Mozart’s Eine kleine nachtmusik, and an orchestral arrangement of Debussy’s Clair de lune.
