Each composer broke new ground in their own unique way, whether it was the shocking embrace of 1920’s jazz idioms in Milhaud’s whimsical interpretation of the Creation of the World, Schumann’s exuberant romanticism in his 2nd Symphony or Mozart’s unprecedented precocious ease with his Bassoon Concerto. Tune in on Monday, October 31 at 7 p.m. for Iowa Public Radio’s Symphonies of Iowa encore broadcast!
