    Episode 7 - Romantic Era

    Episode 7 - Romantic Era

    Franz Schubert: “When I wished to sing of love, it turned to sorrow. And when I wished to sing of sorrow, it was transformed for me into love.”
    Robert Schumann: “To send light into the darkness of men’s hearts – such is the duty of the artist.”
    Franz Liszt: “Music embodies feeling without forcing it to contend and combine with thought, as it is forced in most arts and especially in the art of words.”

    Episode 6 - Mozart vs. Salieri Myth

    Episode 6 - Mozart vs. Salieri Myth

    For those of you who know and don’t know, there is a conspiracy theory that Salieri killed Mozart by poisoning him with, perhaps using arsenic. Is that true? Or is it not? That’s the question that we will explore today!

    Episode 5 - Mozart

    Episode 5 - Mozart

    At 1 am on December 5 he died suddenly and unexpectedly. His corpse was consecrated in a cheap coffin and brought to the St. Marx Cemetery outside Vienna without any funeral cortege. Only the undertaker kept him company as the corpse, covered in a linen cloth, was lowered into a simple grave with five other deceased. The exact spot remains unknown. A monument, erected many years after his death at St. Marx Cemetery, commemorates the great composer and musician.

    Episode 4 - Classical Era

    Episode 4 - Classical Era

    Why is a symphony different from a concerto? 

    Do you know the answer to this? I do, do you? I have created a YouTube channel for this podcast, so if you want nothing to happen, then just ignore it. But, if you go the Exploring Classical Music YouTube Channel and comment your answers, then absolutely nothing will happen. It’s your choice!

    Episode 3 - Bach

    Today we will explore a life of an unusual person – someone who challenged the paradigms of his time, someone who spent 30 days in jail for quitting his job, someone who gave up comfortable living for his kids, someone who was forgotten for 100 years after his death.

    Episode 2 - Baroque Era

    Episode 2 - Baroque Era

    This is when the belief that words are the only communication tools was no longer accepted. Music was in its very development and overtime proved to be just as effective as words and sentences.
