Howard Hanson, Nebraska’s native son from Wahoo, will be featured tonight during “Nocturnes with Clifford Jones.” Hanson, not only a composer and conductor, was director of the Eastman School of Music for 40 years. As Eastman’s director, he established a high quality school, providing opportunities for commissioning and performing American classical music. Hanson’s legacy of service to American music lives on in the Hanson Institute for American Music at the Eastman school, directed by Hanson until his death.
Tonight, at 10 p.m., tune to KVNO to listen to not only Hanson’s Symphony No. 1, “Nordic”, directed by the composer himself, but also Richard Strauss’ “Death and Transfiguration”, both in their entirety.
Where else can you hear great classical music, uninterrupted and commercial free? Why, only on member supported Classical 90.7 KVNO!
