Letter V Classical Radio July 3

American classical music of the 19th century, other than the works that Antonin Dvořák wrote during his 1890s sojourn in this country, is rarely explored territory. In this eve-of-Fourth of July program, we’ll hear long-neglected compositions by Amy Beach, Arthur Foote, Victor Herbert, John Knowles Paine, George Whitefield Chadwick, William Henry Fry and George Frederick Bristow.
