Four part music history series originally broadcast by Channel 4 in the UK, Autumn 2002.
Composer Howard Goodall links great pieces of music to the era in which they were written in a bid to prove that time, place, culture and politics had more of a part to play in the end product than the genius of the producer. He begins with a historical look at 1874, the year which saw the completion of Wagner's influential Ring cycle.
As always, should these become commercially available i will remove them immediatly. If you enjoy this series please purchase the DVD!
