Composer of the Week: Jacques Offenbach

Station Blog2022-6-20By: Kathleen Kajioka

 

This week: Jacques Offenbach.

This virtuoso cellist couldn’t resist the call to compose for the stage – but high-brow Grand Opera was not for him, no! Instead, his comic send-ups of the musical and political establishment through nearly 100 operettas established him as one of the most influential purveyors of popular music in the 19th century!

Tune in to “A Little Night Music” every night this week just after 7 o’clock!
