This week on Exploring Music, Bill McGlaughlin examines the symphonic output of three figures born in the late 19th century: Igor Stravinsky, Sergei Prokofiev and Ralph Vaughan Williams. Over the first three episodes, McGlaughlin will feature works by the two Russian-born composers. Thursday and Friday's episodes concentrate on the symphonies of the Englishman, Vaughn Williams.

Exploring Music airs weeknights at 11 pm.
