Certain pieces of music are givens when you say the word classical.  Pachelbel’s Canon.  Barber’s Adagio for Strings.  Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.  Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.  However, I think we miss something when we just gloss over these works.

ProMusica Chamber Orchestra Music Director David Danzmayr looks at new music, as well as the pros and cons of playing “the warhorses.”
