Thank you, Ranjit! It seemed radical to propose a "Classical" show back then. I can't tell y'all how fun it is to explore this music and put it in a Freeform context for the airwaves...

Not to debase the discourse, but the first few notes made me think it was the opening theme music to Python's Holy Grail. I have a CD of the incidental music from the movie, it's pretty good!
Avatar 8:41pm Bethany Ryker:

@mariano - that sounds pretty awesome and I'm excited to listen to both back-to-back!

oooooo La Sylphide! :)
gorgeous show, Bethany -- enjoying immensely!
  8:47pm The Butterman:

Bethany, Just a wonderful show- always. I wouldn’t get this education anywhere else. Thanks.

Bethany: I'm trying to find what the CD was, as mine is buried away somewhere. Jan Stockaert is one composer, but there was an in-house BBC composer who made stock music that wound up in Holy Grail and on the show, iirc. Proved to be much more interesting than I'd imagined.
