Lecture Liner Notes

Mike Shapiro continued the TAS Lecture Fest with an entry entitled: "Program Music (or: What Does E Flat Look Like?)"

Music requires a structure,
Often purely formal,
But music that paints a picture
Is also fairly normal.

From Vivaldi's buoyant Spring
To Ives' Unanswered Question,
Composers labor to bring
Sound out of pregnant suggestions.
