Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

This week Bill continues to explore music from composers’ backyards, as well as their voyages to distant lands.

This week Exploring Music continues traveling with composers around the world. Listen to them express the sounds of their native land and paint musical pictures of their travels. We will hear music of homesick George Gershwin in Paris, Charles Ives floating down the Housatonic River in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts, and Ella Fitzgerald and her friends on the “A” train in New York City.
