New Recordings & New Releases: Classical 104.9 FM

Now that 2019 is here, Classical 104.9 FM is busy adding new releases and new recordings into the music library for this new year!

On Wednesday morning, January 16th, starting at 9:00am, "Classical New Orleans" host James Arey will present a full hour of new recordings just added to the library.

You'll hear cellist Hee-Young Lim playing Saint-Saens; Ray Chen playing Debussy; Leif Ove Andsnes playing Chopin; and Simone Dinnerstein & A Far Cry performing a recent piano concerto by Philip Glass.

The support of our local businesses, underwriters and members makes the acquisition of new music and new recordings possible!
