EXP 20-45 E: Beethoven at Parnassus, Part I - Episode 5, 8/14/2020

From The WFMT Radio Network | Part of the Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin series | 58:59

Exploring_music_logo_small This is a festival of the late music of Beethoven, from the last ten years of his life. Parnassus refers to the great mountain that towered over Delphi in Greek legend, and was the home of the Muses. In these years from 1816 to 1826, Beethoven soared to almost mythological heights with some of his greatest works—the Ninth Symphony, last four piano sonatas, Missa Solemnis, and his final string quartets. All of these compositions still sit at the top of Mt. Parnassus. Episode 5 of 5.
