It’s now the third week of my series of summer listening suggestions that can be found in the Classical Cafe blog at MetroPulse.com. I have promised that they will represent a varied range of classical (and new) music that might possibly open some ears, but at least, provide some entertaining warm weather ideas for listening. So far, so good!
