Letter V Classical Radio this week

Exploring classical style as it flowered in the late 18th century, a couple of familiar works – Mozart’s “Eine kleine Nachtmusik,” Haydn’s Symphony No. 102 – and an assortment of discoveries, including one of the most unusual pieces of the period, Paul Wranitzky’s “Grande Symphonie charactéristique,” a musical play-by-play of the French Revolution and the outbreak of the Revolutionary Wars.
