Monday Classics 2010

Welcome back to Monday Classics for 2010 - the show that plays you the greatest classical tunes from the year dot onwards, and brings you all the news of what's going on in the world of classical music in Essex.

Like last year, we will be bringing you guests from various musical organisations who will be letting you know why you should go to their concerts and beinging you live music from the studio too.

Tonight's CD of the week was 'Pure' by Hayley Westenra, and we heard 'Who painted the moon black', 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Heaven' from that.

We also heard music from Stravinksky 1940 ballet 'Petrushka', 'Jupiter' from The Planets - Gustav Holst, the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky, John Rutter's setting of the Scottish folk song 'O waly waly' and Haydn's famous Trumpet Concerto in E flat.

Check back in the next few days for the updated Phoenix FM Classical Events guide; guests in the studio later this month include Brentwood Cathedral Music's production of Noyes Fludde, and the Chelmsford Ballet Company.

See you every Monday on Phoenix from 7pm.

Happy 2010, Ed
