Exploring Music Playlist: New Wine In Old Bottles
Exploring Music Playlist: New Wine In Old Bottles

May 13th, 2024

Details

This is a week of transcriptions, orchestrations, fantasies, rhapsodies and reminiscences: the creative efforts of composers who give new vitality to existing music by transforming it. This is much more than composers finding inspiration from others—these are works that use the structure and tunes of another composer to create a new piece in their voice. Bill includes folk music and works by Bach, Liszt and Ravel as set by Stokowski, Schoenberg and Copland.
