Tune in for a nightly mix that spans the centuries.

WQXR's Bach 360 festival may be over, but this week the Young Artists Showcase has a pair of encores that were a little too far afield to fit into last week’s Bach special: pieces by American composers Samuel Barber and Michael Daugherty.
Recognized as the greatest French composer of his generation, Gabriel Fauré bridged the Romantic era and the 20th century with a sophistication that heralded the arrival of a significant new voice. From the his art songs to the Requiem and beyond, host Bill McGlaughlin covers his life and music.
