Welcome to our corner of the new West Virginia Public Broadcasting website!
The "Classically Speaking" blog is a place where you can read, see, and hear more about classical music. There will be a special focus on West Virginia, with interviews and commentary from artists in and from the state. We'll also review recordings that we play on West Virginia Public Radio, and bring you classical music stories from around the world. If there's something you'd like to read more about, be sure to let us know.
You can speak your mind by creating an account to log in and post comments (These comments will take a short time appear on the site). I think we'll have a lot of fun here, especially if we are polite, respectful, and try to stay on topic.
Check out some of our initial posts, including an interview with Gil Shaham
and a review of Nigel Kennedy's new CD
(both violinists, I know--we will be branching out!). Coming up, we'll have guest commentary from WV Symphony manager Paul Helfrich, an interview with Professor John Beall about his Double Concerto, and learn more about Richard Strauss' 1904 visit to West Virginia from Professor Christopher Wilkinson.
