Battle Music

Monday 12 March 2007 0:00-1:00 (Radio 3)

Lucie Skeaping explores composititions with a battle theme. It is no wonder that 17th century composers were fascinated by warfare: the Thirty Years War is perhaps what fired the imagination of Biber in his Battalia. Including works by Schmelzer, Scheidt and Janequin.

Duration:

1 hour
