“We’re game” this week as we explore music by gamblers, for gamblers, and about gamblers. (Dare you to join us!)
We’re heading into battle this hour, for a sampling of music by, for, or about soldiers.
Masses and chansons by 15th-century French composer Firminus Caron.
We’ll hear how composers have reused their own tunes and ideas, and what ideas they’ve borrowed from others. Plus, we’ll hear several instances of contrafacta.
