Louise Lanzilotti

  As often happens for me, a theme that I've researched leads to more great music than I can share in a day. I could probably do a week of programs on classical music inspired by the earth and nature. So - a second day of music celebrating Ka Honua Ola. I'm choosing from work by Vivaldi, Beethoven, Bantock, Debussy, Mussorgsky, Copland, Butterworth, and possibly more.
