Episodes of WLRH Programs

Brass, Reeds, and Percussion: August 1, 2020

Program music attempts to depict an event or a thing musically. Often the title suggests the nature of the “program.” Over the past several weeks, we’ve been airing a series of pieces from a longer composition call the “Seven Wonders of the Ancient World,” composed by the Alsatian composer Erick Debs. Today’s movement from that longer work is called “Temple of Artemis.” Artemis was the Greek god of the hunt, the wilderness, and the moon. The temple was a grand building approximately 240 wide and 420 long with Ionian columns. The first version of the temple was destroyed by a flood. Croesus, as in “rich as Croesus,” rebuilt the temple, but his version was destroyed by arson.
