Presented by Andrew Hodges, our Cirencester-based composer, violinist and coach, this latest programme asks the question: “Did classical composers ever get ill?”
When you’re listening to the beautiful sounds of a classical piece of music do you ever think about the kind of illnesses the composer might have had? Some had severe pain most of their lives. Others suffered deafness. And yet despite this they managed to write exquisite concertos, symphonies and opera. Andrew will be playing the music of Wagner, Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart, Vivaldi, Gershwin and Delius and letting you into a few secrets about their health. You’ll find it inspiring!
Today’s “Corinium Classics”, presented by Andrew Hodges, is a musical mix of the past and the present with a distinctly classical flavour. Andrew’s aim is to make classical music much more accessible to everyone. There’s more about it here on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeZ4ymCygug
