Exploring Music
with Bill McGlaughlin
Music in 19th Century Paris - Join us to explore the Parisian scene from roughly 1813 to 1870, the period between the fall of Napoleon I and the start of the Franco Prussian War. We'll look at Hector Belioz, and also at Bizet, Cherubini, Faure, Gounod, Meyerbeer, Offenbach, and St-Saens. And we'll visit with some of the foreigners who flocked to Paris to make their own contributions: Bellini, Chopin, Donizetti, Liszt, Paganini, Rossini, Sarasate, Wagner, and more.
