The Music Connection


Music has been written about almost everything—fields and mountains, flowers and trees, birds and animals, love and hate, life and death.

And one thing more.

In this hour, music about music—from Handel to Schubert, from Strauss to Mahler, from Vaughan Williams to Bernstein.
