There's much more to Ottorino Respighi than Pines of Rome and Fountains of Rome. This week we'll hear his connections with the music of Brazil, touch on his experiences in war-torn Europe, and see how this intriguing violinist, musicologist and composer artfully moved Italian music into the 20th century.

I sincerely like and respect Bill McClaughlin, but isn't seven hours a week a bit much? Do we not have our own home-grown musical intellects on staff who could do the show just as well? Also, the hawking of the cruises at the beginning of the show is tacky, to put it mildly.
