Houston Music Highlights: Week of September 28th, 2015

A preview of the Houston Music Highlights airing on Classical 91.7 this week.

Be on the listen for Houston Music Highlights, Tuesday through Friday on Classical 91.7! These 6-minute segments feature local musicians and ensembles such as the Houston Symphony, the Apollo Chamber Players, and numerous others each week. Houston Music Highlights air at 7 AM, and then repeat at 1 PM, 6 PM, and 10 PM. The highlights for this week feature an American interpretation of Hungarian folk music, for string quartet; a German setting of Psalm 13, "Herr, wie lange willst du mein so gar vergessen? (How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord?);" a French chamber piece that seems to fit somewhere in between a concerto and a sextet; and an arrangement of one of Dvořák's many Slavonic Dances, bookending nicely with the European folk flair of Tuesday's piece.
