Classical Excursions: Brahms vs Wagner
Saturday, March 13 4:00 CST and on demand for ticket holders
One of the hottest arguments in musical circles during the 19th century was whether music should be absolute and only exist as pitches ordered in time, or if music can be programmatic and be part of a larger narrative framework.
Brahms and Wagner were the figureheads of each movement and the debates raged for decades.
Seth will give background on each composer and the movement they represented and play some pretty dang good music.
