Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin

In the 5th century BC, water was classified as one of the four essential elements. Over the centuries, artists, poets, philosophers, and composers have returned again and again to the mysteries of water for inspiration.  This week, we’ll focus on “water music,” with works by Vaughan Williams, Mahler, Debussy, and (of course) Handel.

10:00pm


Elena See, Bob Christiansen, Scott Blankenship, Ward Jacobson
