Exploring Music
with Bill McGlaughlin
The Symphony, Part 1 - In the beginning, there were Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, or so we thought. Thats until we uncovered a whole world of instrumental music so varied, so wonderful and so woefully unknown, we decided to spend some time in that glorious place. Starting with a Sinfonia by Biaggio Marini from 1618, we slowly make our way through the seventeenth century, the eighteenth century and finish at the brink of the Romantic era with the Second Symphony by Beethoven.
