The symphony has been fertile ground for composers throughout history and around the world. This week, we'll follow its development in France in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Since 11:00 PM is too late for me, whenever I want to listen to "Exploring Music", I listen online at 7:00 PM at WWFM.org or RAFSTL.org.

Karl Haas kind of 'owned' the 11am slot, and maybe WQXR is trying to avoid comparisons. I, too, wish that the show were on earlier - or perhaps available for streaming later?

I know there are many things to balance, but it wouold be nice to get a response- even if it's "No1"

I'm encouraged to read comments similar to my own about WQXR's schedule change that put Bill McGlaughlin's "Exploring Music" at an hour too late for us. I try to be civil, but I notice also an absence of civility from WQXR: so far there has been no attempt to reply to my complaint. The central point is that McGlaughlin talks analytically about music, in contrast to other presenters who are part of the small army of commentators these days devoted to trivializing musical experience.
