What's New on Classical 104.9 FM

Sep 11, 2017

Here at Classical 104.9 FM, we really enjoy being able to broadcast the newest releases from the current generation of classical music superstars: Joshua Bell, Murray Perahia, Hilary Hahn, Mischa Maisky and Dawn Upshaw, to name just a few.

But, as our music library continues to grow, we’re often discovering CDs that were released in the past 5-10 years that we missed out on obtaining the first time around.

And, while these amazing recordings aren’t the newest-of-the-new, we’re still thrilled to be able to get them into our library AND on the air.

(NBC used to market TV reruns with the slogan: “If you haven’t seen it, then it’s new to you!”)

Here’s a short preview – and, a Spotify playlist -- of just a few of the “new” releases that we’re adding to our Classical 104.9 FM music library in September… Enjoy!
