Clowning Around the Classical Repertoire

« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, March 28, 2016

This week on Exploring Music, host Bill McGlaughlin finds humor in works throughout the classical music canon. You'll hear pieces meant to tickle the funny bone by serious composers including Stravinsky, Mozart, Haydn and more; as well as a cameo from P.D.Q. Bach, the notorious "last and least" of Bach's children. This series airs weeknights at 11 pm.

Do you still have that wonderful "Europa und der Stier" by Sitzplatz. I heard it back in the fifties when I lived in NYC, and it
still makes me laugh when I think about it.
If you could send me an e-mail alert beforehand so I can be ready, address above.
Thanks and Happy April Fool Day.
