4) UNSUNG CLASSICAL ORCHESTRAL COMPOSERS (digital – fortnightly).  Only a small number of Western classical composers have made it to the musical “mainstream”. Hundreds of “unsung composers” whose works rival those of Bach, Chopin, Ravel or Dvorak have fallen through the cracks of time.  By recorded talks and orchestral music excerpts, these sessions explore their remarkable orchestral music, directly accessed by clicking on the link: https://vimeo.com/channels/1713915/videos
