(Arnold Schoenberg Center, Vienna, Austria)
This week Exploring Music is ascending some of the most colossal musical mountains in existence: works such as Schoenberg's Gurrelieder and Havergal Brian's Gothic Symphony, which are (usually) too big to program on the show.
Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin is an exciting daily radio program that delves into a wide assortment of topics in classical music. Each five-program series builds off a single theme ranging from composer biographies to explorations of various cultures, musical styles, and time periods.
