When our listener wrote asking Bill to describe the different scales and modes in music, he said a week ought to do it. Bill quickly realized that a week ought NOT to do it, and two weeks were better! So, this week we continue listening to music change from major to minor, plus harmonic surprises that composers add to their music. This same listener goes on to say, “What classical music buff wouldn’t find that interesting and entertaining, and what classical music neophyte wouldn’t find that enlightening?” He’s right! Come listen with fresh ears to Schubert and Mahler symphonies, plus our favorite folk songs and jazz standards.
