The King of Swing plays Mozart. Benny Goodman, better known as a jazz musician, maintained a lifelong interest in classical music. Here he plays the Clarinet Quintet in A major. Listeners who were watching television thirty-or-so years ago may recognize this as "The Last M*A*S*H Quintet."

Also scheduled are a triple violin concerto of Vivaldi, the Bach Magnificat, music from Rameau and Praetorius, and some songs from Elizabethan England.

Here’s the long awaited annual Sound Waves Top 30.  There were a lot of great albums released in 2014.  It was truly difficult to select only 30, but these albums got a lot of spins on Sound Waves throughout the year.
Here’s to a great year and a rockin’ 2015!
 
Tune in to Sound Waves on New Year’s Eve, Wednesday Dec. 31, 10am-2pm and we’ll run down this list and a few more honorable mentions.

The great Russian film director Sergei Eisenstein asked Sergei Prokofiev to write the score for his 1938 movie depicting Alexander Nevsky's defeat of the Teutonic knights at the Battle of Lake Peipus in 1242. The film got caught up in the politics of the day. You can hear the story as well as the film score on New Years night.

Also scheduled are Schubert's Impromptus, Opus 90 complete; Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 1; and music of Palestrina, Monteverdi and Sweelinck.

Join Fred Migliore for a special edition of FM Odyssey, Christmas day from 10 - 1 PM EDT.

Fred will share the 3 hours with long time friend and WFIT show host, Blair Clark (C'est la Vie) for a truly unique soundtrack to your holiday morning.

"I don't know about everyone else, but after a month of "traditional", wall paper - Christmas songs, coming at me from every direction, its time for a breath of fresh air". Migliore said.

Fred went on to say, "Sticking with the theme of the holidays, the program will feature songs that will touch your hearts.
