The title of this Exploring Music series comes from the 1941 jazz standard that captures the enduring attraction to this musical genre. Over the course of this week, explore rhapsodies from across the repertoire, including Hungarian, Slavonic, blue, Bohemian and Rhapsodies of Fire. What it is about this "indefinite form" that has attracted composers from around the world and across the centuries? Host Bill McGlaughlin delves into some of the elements that unite this "indefinite form."

Exploring Music airs weeknights at 11 pm.
