  • There is a somewhat similar story of how Pablo Casals discovered a copy of the Bach cello suites in a music shop (the originals do not exist) and worked to bring them to the public’s attention: https://www.wbur.org/artery/2019/10/18/cellists-boston-pablo-casals

  • I love Mendelssohn and I’m so excited to see Mendelssohn included especially, The “Scottish” Symphony. I’ve loved Classical music all my life as well as playing the piano when I’m not knitting or reading, etc. Great music can inspire us all. We need music more than ever today.

    • That was FANTASTIC!!! Thank you!!!

  • Enjoyed this series when I found it last year – all except, admittedly, Scarletti. But thoroughly enjoyed Vivaldi!
