Every weekday morning at 10 a.m., the hosts at Classical MPR play a standout work based on the theme for the week. We call them Morning Glories.
This week on Morning Glories, we're focusing on pieces of music that have inspired works of art.
Ludwig van Beethoven: Choral Fantasy
...inspired Moritz von Schwind's A Symphony
Richard Wagner: Lohengrin
...inspired Wassily Kandinsky's Composition 8
Maurice Ravel: Valley of the Bells
...inspired Betsy Eby's Valley of the Bells
Jan Dismas Zelenka
...inspired Annael's A Child is Born
No Morning Glories today (live SPCO broadcast)
And check out our Class Notes video "What Music Shares With Art" for more on how these two media intersect.
