Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

This week, listen for part 2 of The Game of Pairs, and hear the influence that composers have had on
one another over the centuries.

Our two-week series focusing on legendary partnerships between composers continues. This week starts in Paris with French impressionist composers Debussy and Ravel, focusing on their respective quartets. Bill then explores the friendship between Béla Bartôk and Zoltan Kodály, in particular their love of Hungarian folk music. In the middle of the week Bill tips his hat to the title of our theme by playing the second movement of Bartôk’s Concerto for Orchestra, “Giuoco delle coppie” or “The Game of Pairs”. We close this week with Leonard Bernstein conducting the New York Philharmonic in a performance of his longtime friend Aaron Copland’s third symphony.
