Harmonia
with Angela Mariani
And One Was a Soldier - We'll head into battle for a sampling of music by, for, or about soldiers. For many musicians of the past, war was personal; it ravaged their cities, starved their loved ones, drove them to flee, or inspired them to fight. And, sometimes, it influenced what they wrote. We'll explore music with military ties on this edition of Harmonia.
