Letter V Classical Radio this week

A sampler of the music on tap in the 2015-16 season of the Chamber Music Society of Central Virginia, scheduled (weather permitting) to get under way with a lecture-recital on Oct. 3 at the Richmond Public Library and a concert on Oct. 4 at First Unitarian Universalist Church. The CMSCVA season continues with six more programs in December, February and April.

Cellist James Wilson, the society’s founder, artistic director and intrepid musical explorer, joins me in the second hour of the show to discuss this season’s mix of favorite pieces and discoveries.
