Classical Music Playlist, March 22, 2022

Listen throughout the day to today’s women in classical music for Women’s History Month: American composer Jennifer Higdon (b. 1962) and soprano Renée Fleming (b. 1959).

The contemporaries of Paul Dukas (1865-1935) rank him among the best composers of their time. But probably because he saw himself first and foremost as a teacher who composed, and certainly because he held himself to extremely high standards, he left behind a limited number of works, including his famous “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice ” and his only symphony which is today the masterpiece from noon to 2 o’clock. :00 a.m.
