Musical Minds

[Repeated from Tuesday 4pm.] An anecdotal history of classical music presented by 18 year-old composer and writer Jack Pepper. It’s Episode 16, and today Jack looks at the eye doctor who blinded JS Bach, the composer who also worked as a medical doctor and who fainted at the sight of blood, and the five-foot-tall composer who, when sat at a piano, would have to sit on a pile of books just to reach the keyboard. Also today is the first opera written by a woman, and the composer who overcame blindness to write one of the 20th century’s most famous works. All episodes can be heard on www.jackpeppermusician.com. Follow Jack on Twitter @jrapepper and use the hashtag #MusicalMinds.
