Georg Philip Telemann

Weekend of November 2, 2013

Composers who died too young

It's worth wondering about what music might exist now if certain composers had lived longer. This weekend on Performance Today, host Fred Child samples music that remembers composers who died far too young. Plus, composer Bruce Adolphe joins host Fred Child with this week's Piano Puzzler.
