NET Radio's weekly series of fine music performed and recorded on Nebraska's stages airs Sundays at 2 p.m. CT.
On Sunday, Sept. 6, Lincoln's Symphony Orchestra (LSO) and conductor Edward Polochick feature pianist Richard Fountain in performances of Liszt's "Totentanz, S. 126" and Bartok's "Concerto for Orchestra."

Well-known American choral music is featured on Sunday, Sept. 13, in "An American Ideal," a concert from last season's Abendmusik: Lincoln series. The Abendmusik Men's Chorus, UNL Men's Chorus and the Plymouth Brass perform some of America's most heartfelt patriotic works.
On Sunday, Sept. 20, the Omaha Symphony performs a concert called "Piano Extravaganza" with three pianists in the finale from their 2007-2008 season. The program includes Mendelssohn's "Concerto No. 1 in G Minor for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 25" performed by Stewart Goodyear; Grieg's "Concerto in A Minor for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 16" performed by Orli Shaham; and Tchaikovsky's "Concerto No. 1 in B Flat Minor for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 23" performed by Alexander Korsantia.
