An hour on the water
Our first hour features music inspired by the water, starting with Smetana's "The Moldau," performed by the Russian National Orchestra in Florida. We'll also have flowing works from Ravel, Michael Daugherty and Dana Wilson. And Rebel plays a Handel "Water Music" Suite in Virginia.
