- Sundays, 10:00am–12:00pm
“Fearful Symmetries” gets its name and inspiration from the poetry of William Blake, the music of composer John Adams and the 1990s TV series The X-Files. The two-hour program specializes in contemporary classical music, especially music composed and performed in Nashville. Every week, we’ll hear contemporary classical music by such local ensembles as the Nashville Symphony, Nashville Opera, Nashville Ballet, Alias Chamber Ensemble, Gateway Chamber Orchestra, Sound Riot and chatterbird, among others. We’ll also experience the music of such terrific Nashville-based composers as Michael Alec Rose, Mike Linton, Cristina Spinei, Edgar Meyer, Bryan Clark and Mark Volker. “Fearful Symmetries” plays music from the standard classical repertoire, but you won’t encounter classical wallpaper music. Nor will you come across excerpts. This show is fearless and plays multi-movement instrumental and vocal works in their entirety, without cuts or vandalism. Tune in every Sunday morning to hear adventurous classical music along with interviews with important local artists.
