An anecdotal history of classical music presented by 18 year-old composer and writer Jack Pepper. In Episode 19, Jack discusses the day JS Bach got into a fistfight and nearly killed someone, the conductor who was whipped in the face by a jealous husband (whilst conducting an opera), and the Baroque composer who doubled as a Jesuit missionary in South America. Also featured today is the composer who entered a competition with multiple pieces under different names... and won with them all. All episodes can be heard on www.jackpeppermusician.com.
