Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

This week Bill explores music about, and inspired by, nature.  

Afoot and lighthearted, Bill takes to the open road with the world before him. In the steps of Walt Whitman, he explores the relationship of man to nature as expressed in music. We start this week with Bryn Terfel singing The Vagabond, the words of Robert Lewis Stevenson set to music by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Bill will then “inhale great drafts of space” with Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony, Strauss’ Alpine Symphony, and Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras. Come join us on this colorful musical path.
