The Nocturne Connection
Saturday, December 8, 2012
The orchestral work is by Debussy, the piano piece by Chopin, and while they sound worlds apart, both bear the title . . . "Nocturne."
Obviously, these two composers have very different ideas about the meaning of the word-and so have others, as we'll hear in this hour as we explore the Nocturne from Mozart to Copland-and beyond.
