The Railroad Connection

  
As important as they may be, airplanes and automobiles have never loomed as large in classical music as have trains and railways-or in such variety. In this hour, a polka by Johann Strauss Jr., a choral celebration by Hector Berlioz, a trip through the Brazilian forests by Heitor Villa-Lobos, and much more.
