Mozart's Attic Thursday Aug. 30th at 10:00 pm

Aug 27, 2018

We begin this week's program with music from the Ukrainian Romantic composer, Mykola Lysenko, combining national themes with forms borrowed from J.S. Bach.

Then we'll hear some 20th-century music of Saint Saens in an improvisational style. No, it's not jazz -- or is it?

At about the same time, Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote some music inspired by 16th-century English idiom. We'll contrast that with some English music of that era, and then we'll cross over to 1620s Italy to see what Claudio Monteverdi was up to.
