March 18-19 2017: The lush sound of strings are the highlight of this week’s Intermountain Classics offerings, starting with a work by Johann Sebastian Bach, the last of his Brandenburg concerti, and contrasting it with the beautiful 20th century Piano Trio No. 2 by Russian composer Dimitri Shostakovich. The second hour will highlight works by contemporary American composers, with a new recording of John Adams’ Become Ocean and Dessner’s St. Carolyn By the Sea. This is a repeat of a program originally aired in January 2016.
