Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

This week Bill connects the music of Bach to Beethoven, featuring some of the greatest works from both composers.


A century separates Bach’s B Minor Mass and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 – crowning achievements of two very distinct voices. Bill begins the week observing Bach’s Mass in B Minor, Italian Concerto, and Brandenburg Concertos, then connects them to Beethoven by exploring the harmonies, rhythms, orchestration, and musical forms of Italy, France, Germany, and England. Bill reaches the end of the week with the Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4, and excerpts from Haydn and Mozart that provide context for Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7.
