Some stories grow bigger and bolder the more times they’re told—until they turn into legends…
On this Saturday’s episode of Second Inversion: the stuff of legends! We’ll hear new music inspired by ancient myths, fables, and folklore. Gather ’round the fire and tune in for epic tales from the Silk Road, the Andes Mountains, and the cliffs of Ireland.
Classical music doesn’t always have to be so complicated.
There is beauty in simplicity—and there is music, too, if you slow down to listen! This Saturday on Second Inversion: Simple Gifts. From dainty macaroons to afternoons spent at the piano, we’ll hear music inspired by life’s simple pleasures. Join us as we take a moment to appreciate the little things.
The spring season is all about change. It’s a time to clean your space, refresh your wardrobe, maybe switch to iced coffee. And while we can always find inspiration in the past, spring is really more about looking to the future.
Every year spring brings new beginnings, new growth—and especially new music. This Saturday on Second Inversion: Music in Bloom. We’re dreaming of spring, with music inspired by chirping birds, buzzing bees, and budding flowers. From super blooms in the South African desert to melodies carried on the salty seas of Japan, we’ll hear music inspired by the sweet sounds of spring.
“The older the fiddle, the sweeter the tune,” as they say in Ireland. And the age-old folk music of the Emerald Isle is still inspiring new composers today.
This Saturday on Second Inversion: Luck of the Irish. We’ll hear music from the rolling hills and ramshackle pubs of Ireland. Pour yourself a pint and join us as we toast the Emerald Isle, with music inspired by the sounds, spirit, and folklore of Ireland.
Music is like water: it can be calm and serene, or choppy and chaotic. It can lift you, carry you, or bury you—it can immerse you in its waves.
On this Saturday’s episode of Second Inversion, we’re scuba diving for new sounds. We’ll get lost in the waves, with music ranging from rippling rivers to epic storms and tender whale songs. Plus, a sound ecologist takes us to the beach to listen to the barnacles.
