Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

This week Bill explores the music composed by Ludwig van Beethoven during the final 10 years of his life. 

This is a festival of the late music of Beethoven, from the last ten years of his life. Parnassus refers to the great mountain that towered over Delphi in Greek legend, and was the home of the Muses. In these years from 1816 to 1826, Beethoven soared to almost mythological heights with some of his greatest works—the Ninth Symphony, last four piano sonatas, Missa Solemnis, and his final string quartets. All of these compositions still sit at the top of Mt. Parnassus.
