Fairytales (Second World War)

Duration:
1 hour
First broadcast:
Wednesday 12 August 2009

This episode is available until midday on Friday, 21st August as part of the Series Catch-up Trial.

Donald Macleod and Michael Kater discuss how, though Carl Orff lived through one of the most horrific epochs in mankind's history, he tended to look the other way, seeking inspiration in fairy tales and Greek myths.

  • Series Catch-Up Trial

    Carl Orff as Composer of the Week, is part of a trial for a limited number of radio series which are being made available with series catch-up. Series catch-up extends the availability window for individual episodes beyond the usual seven days after their transmission, allowing you the chance to listen to an entire series until a week after the final episode is broadcast.
