Sergei Rachmaninoff
This Russian composer held on to being a romantic composer well into the twentieth century, a time when his fellow composers like Stravinsky and Prokofiev were forever reinventing classical music. We will dedicate this week to explore the private life and music of this lyrically gifted pianist and composer. Rachmaninoff once said, “If you want to know me, you must know my music."

Baltic Music
What is it that makes the music of the Baltic region so recognizable and compelling? Many of us know and love the work of Sibelius, Finland's greatest musical export, but the countries around the Gulf of Finland have given us a wealth of composers, some better known than others. In this week of shows we will explore music from a land of lakes and islands; isolated, self-contained, and full of beauty. Composers like Erkki Melartin, Leevi Madetoja, Joonas Kokkonen, Heino Eller, and Arvo Pärt, working in the long shadow of Sibelius, created violin concertos, symphonies, tone poems, choral works, and chamber works. So what is it that fascinates us about this distant northern region? Perhaps we will sum it up best with a fantastic piece by Uuno Klami's called Aurora Borealis.

Schubertiade, Part II
This title refers to a type of “homemade” music that became popular during Schubert's time: chamber music. This week we pick up this theme in order to hear compositions by one of the namesakes of this intimate genre, Franz Schubert himself. Bill will share with us several pieces Schubert wrote based on the poems of Wilhelm Müller. These are about a young man who falls in love at first sight and then experiences the loss of love and the collapse of the world. Playlist information at exploringmusic.wfmt.com.
