Exploring Music
with Bill McGlaughlin
Baltic Music - Many of us know and love the work of Sibelius, Finland's greatest musical export, but the countries around the Gulf of Finland have given us a wealth of composers, some better known than others. In this week of shows we will explore music from a land of lakes and islands; isolated, self-contained, and full of beauty.
