The Sun Connection

  

“The day of the sun is like the day of a king,” wrote American poet Wallace Stevens. “It is a promenade in the morning, a sitting on the throne at noon, a pageant in the evening.”

Join us in this hour, as we follow the sun from dawn to dusk, in music by Vivaldi, Grieg, Strauss, Respighi, and more.
