Then I'll begin. A programme dedicated to the folklore and legends that have inspired composers over the centuries. It was a particular component of 19th century music and indeed Wagner's music is nothing but legends and ancient tales. However, I have lots of other composers for you to enjoy from Sibelius to Marshener and a little known piece by Florent Schmidt!
