How Do You Get From Bach to Beethoven?

Exactly 100 years separates Bach’s B Minor Mass and Beethoven’s Choral Symphony, seminal works from two distinct eras. This week, host Bill McGlaughlin explores how music progressed in this century, tracing inspirations in harmony, rhythm, orchestration and form.

Love hearing Bill McGlaughlin on any topic, and this one (what I got to hear of it) was very intersting, especially the Boccherini debate. If only we could have this kind of discussion and wheer knowledge displayed more often on WQXR! We used to get it with David Dubal also, who was banished from the new station; and Peter Allen, long since retired from the Met broadcasts and replaced by two stiffs.

Oh well!
