Nebraska Concerts

Sunday, September 24, at 1:00 p.m. Central on Nebraska Concerts

The history of classical music is vast and rich -- and most of it was written by composers who were not well known during their lives, or who fell into relative obscurity after their death. We'll discover some of those names on this weeks show, including Niels Gade, Dulcie Holland, Albert Roussel, Nicolaus Bruhns, Judith Bingham and Ad Wammes. There'll also be a few familiar names – Ravel, Bach, Schumann and Shostakovich. Join the Nebraska Chamber Players and organist Benjamin Sheen this week for the well-known and the obscure.

Niels Gade by Josef Kriehuber
