I'm copying: "can you send details about the Barber piece songs played this evening at 11:00 p.m. plus the following piece conducted by Leonard Slatkin (Medea's meditation)
"
It's difficult to find what you played and what will be played. The previous version of your website shown the calendar clearer.

I'm really enjoying this program--thank you! You asked for suggestions of other composers: how about exploring the work of Lukas Foss? We hear so little of this man's music on the radio, and yet it is so rich, diverse and compelling.
