Love has inspired composers through the centuries, with the tragic story of Romeo and Juliet probably the most popular. Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Gounod, Berlioz, and Kabalevsky all wrote rchestral works, ballets and, operas based on that story, not to mention Nino Rota's film score.
Even Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story was inspired by the doomed lovers.
WRTI will sample all of them on Valentine’s Day…and bring you other musical love scores, from Ravel’s Daphnis and Chloe, to Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, and Wagner's Tristan and Isolde.
Love is in the air, and on the air on WRTI. You're in store for a very romantic Valentine's week when you tune in or listen online between February 13th and 15th. It's classical and jazz romantic music from the heart - wrapped with love - from us to you!
Romantic Music with Dave, Jack, and Jill February 13th and 14th 6 am to 6 pm
