The Childhood Connection

"Studies of the Children of Paul Berard," by Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1881)

 

“In every adult there dwells the child that was,” observes author John Connolly. “And in every child there lies the adult that will be.”

It’s an apt turn of phrase, for childhood is as much a state of mind as a state of being—as we’ll hear in this hour, with music for and about children, by Mozart, Fauré, Ravel, Debussy, Elgar, Bartok and more.
