Picking out music entirely from artists from the U.K. for this session of Bridging the Gap. Weaving in and out of downtempo, grime, big beat, and a little neo-soul.

A general program today of requests by listeners over the past couple of months, from Bach to Berwald and Rachmaninov to Reich. An adventure led by listeners.

Today's program was inspired by the Hawaiian Oboe Legacy project of J. Scott Janusch. Scott has been performing with the Hawai‘i Symphony Orchestra for many years and wanted to leave a legacy to the people of Hawai‘i. He chose to created a project involving the making of a kauila wood oboe that will be left in the care of the non-profit Live Music Awareness to be shared with Hawai‘i. Next Monday, May 20th, at the Doris Duke Theatre, Chamber Music Hawai‘i celebrates the instrument's completion with its final concert.

Embracing a week of heat, humidity, and rain... our DJ-in-Training Harrison Patiño offers up some sultry sounds for sultry weather.

Yesterday was about the orchestra and today's program celebrates Chamber Music from various periods, genres and types of ensembles. I'm drawing from music by Schenberg, Schubert, Brahms, Ravel, Haydn, Dvorák, Holst, and Poulenc.

Today, a celebration of the orchestra, featuring works by Tchaikovsky, Bach, Straus, Bartók, Vivaldi, Mozart, Berlioz, Bach, and more. I'll be visited by two graduating seniors from the Hawai‘i Youth Symphony, who'll share their love for orchestra playing and a bit about themselves.

Today - a balance of favorites and lesser known works by Debussy, Fleck, Saint-Saëns, Lekeu, Wolf, Ginastera and more. Meet some new composers and enjoy spending time with familiar ones.

I keep coming back to this picture of a blue fighting fish that was used for an earlier episode of Bridging the Gap... so I decided to soundtrack it, and put together a show of mellow reflective folk, country, and blues for tonights show.

  A regular listener to Classical Pacific suggested that I do a program on lesser-known piano concerti by well-known composers, so that is what I'm doing today, with a twist. I will be presenting lesser-known piano concerti by famous composers, and piano concerti by lesser-known composers as well. You'll hear works chosen from  Saint-Saëns, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Busoni, Chausson, Medtner, Ravel, Dvorák, and Pierné.

Doing a (sort of) Flashback Friday and testing new/old gear at the same time tonight. So I'm going through my "old book", the CDs that I used in my early DJ career, and mixing live in the studio. Running through mid-tempo music in the 1st hour, then focusing on deep house in the 2nd.

  Today, flowers and a fresh breeze on Classical Pacific - a selection of CDs both new and drawn from the shelves, featuring music by Wei-Chieh Lin, Franz Clement, Francis Poulenc, Felix Mendelssohn, WA Mozart, Graham Koehne, Benjamin Britten and Antonio Carlos Jobim. A curated concert for spring.

Our DJ-in-training Harrison Patiño offers a diverse set of some Australia and New Zealandʻs latest and greatest sounds in indie and alternative (with a few older surprises) in celebration of ANZAC Day.

  Following up on yesterday's look at Les Six, I'm going back in time a little to a group of composers that influened them. The Five, or the Mighty Handful, a group of Russian composers, mostly amateur, developed a Russian sound in the nineteenth century. You'll hear music by Balakirev, Cui, Mussorgsky, Rimsky Korsakov and Borodin, as well as composers who influenced or were influenced by them.

Weaving in and out of songs sung acapella, reflective indie folk, and other global delights for tonight’s session of Bridging the Gap.

  Today, a virtual trip to France, in anticipation of the 200 member choir singing the Fauré Requiem tonight at St. Andrew's, under the baton of HPU's Director of Choral Activities Alec Schumacker. The choir is made up of HPU students, Kapolei High School students, and the Windward Choral Society, and is accompanied by members of the Hawai‘i Symphony Orchestra, including our own Sharene Taba. You can listen to three hours of French music on Classical Pacific, and then hurry over to St.

Dub-A-Lubba.
No words can describe what this means. But we do know that this session with Paige Okamura will be filled with laid back dub-groove vibes.

Today I'll be featuring new releases mixed with some non-traditional performances, including artists such as ACRONYM, Rachel Barton Pine, Avi Avital, Fire and Grace, David Amram, Rupert Boyd, Tenet and more. Join me!

Going back and forth between afro-funky zingers and pretty songs about the moon this evening on Bridging the Gap.

  Today is a Blue Moon, the type which occurs when there are two full moons in the same Zodiac sign. In celebration of this phenomenon, I'm playing music about moons and the color blue. As is often true, this theme allows me to play music you might not otherwise hear!
