The Fin de Siècle

Framed by the innovative songs of Charles Ives, this program explores the decadent and tumultuous years surrounding the turn of the 20th century. From a somber work by Brahms to an erotic song by Debussy and a bitter reaction to war by Korngold, song paints a picture of the worldwide unrest that was starting to take hold.  Writer: Sheila Gaffney, freelance radio and screenwriter
