Musicians are like that proverbial apple; they too do not fall far from the tree. When musicians marry musicians, their children are bound to be musical. This week Bill features families of composers and their music-making kin, including many generations of the Bach family, Scarlatti family, plus Robert and Clara Schumann. Enjoy and listen for the familial connections in their works.
