Exploring Music

Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin is a daily radio program that delves into a wide assortment of topics in classical music.

This week: American Masters III. Our series celebrating American composers continues with more innovative works from composers born in the first fifteen years of the 20th century. Lou Harrison with his love of Indonesian Gamelan music, George Rochberg’s tonal 3rd string quartet performed by the Concord Quartet, then on to Franz Waxman’s orchestral music, and Bill ends the week with a full hour of music from the quintessential New Yorker, Morton Gould. Don’t miss the treat of the week; Leroy Anderson’s The Typewriter, performed by the St. Louis Symphony with John Cassica soloing on the typewriter.
