Exploring Music
with Bill McGlaughlin
Beethoven at Parnassus - Part 1 - This week is a festival of the late music of Beethoven, music from the last ten years of his life. 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.
