Genre Fluid Fridays on Classiclectic: Music exploration and discovery through the lens of classically-minded composers and musicians.  Explore beyond the horizon of classical music, Fridays on Public Radio 90, beginning just after 9:30am ET.  This time we savor new recordings of Mozart, Elgar and Beethoven, and explore the music of Michael Vincent Waller, Jan Garbarek & The Hilliard Ensemble, a collaboration between Jim James of My Morning Jacket and Teddy Abrams & The Louisville Orchestra, and Little Kruta.

In anticipation of Beethoven's 250th birthday in 2020, Jan LIsiecki presents a full cycle of Beethoven's five piano concertos, accompanied by the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major, Op. 58 has particularly played a significant role in Lisiecki's career. In 2013, he performed the work with Orchestra Mozart under Claudio Abbado in Bologna, replacing an indisposed Martha Argerich at short notice, and he performed the same work at his Carnegie Hall debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
