The Architects of Music

Two unique courses showing how great composers create their masterpieces

Produced by Steve Robinson, creator of Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin

Classical music expert Lawrence Rapchak shows how great composers construct their masterpieces providing a concise blueprint through classical music’s most complex masterpieces.
In this on-line audio course consists of two sets of programs: 11 Introductory programs that include engaging and entertaining discussions of music by Haydn, Mozart, Chopin, Dvorak and others; and a series exploring every movement of all nine Beethoven symphonies.
In each program, Larry breaks it all down with overflowing passion and sense of humor to provide listeners with the tools to hear how the architects of classical music built their most adored compositions.
The Architects of Music is aimed at people who enjoy classical music but want to learn more about what makes it tick. In other words, YOUR LISTENERS.
Listeners can apply this knowledge to the music they hear on your station every day, giving them a deeper appreciation of the music you broadcast.

Cost: $10 per listener who buys the premium (at whatever level the station decides to charge).
Fulfillment: As soon as New Media Productions receives the name and email address of a listener who requests Architects, a link will be sent to that listener within hours.
To arrange for your station to use the Architects of Music course as a premium, or for more information, please contact:

HARD TIMES

The pandemic has been a major disruption to almost every facet of human life.
In this Hard Times special Ozark Highlands Radio reaches out to various OHR featured artists to discuss the Covid-19 pandemic.
Because of lock-downs and social distancing requirements combined with the nature of their work, touring musicians have been completely shut down. Not only are they dealing with an immediate and unexpected lack of income but also a very uncertain future.
Notable musicians open up about how they, their careers, and their art have been affected by these trying events.
We’ll also hear music from these hard driving gig workers, recorded live at Ozark Folk Center State Park.

Featured Artists:

  • Canadian Ottawa Valley fiddler and step dancer April Verch,
  • Mark Bilyeu of the Ozark original group “The Creek Rocks,”
  • International autoharp maverick and poet Bryan Bowers
  • North Carolina oldtime songwriter and clawhammer banjo slinger Joe Newberry, and
  • Florida contemporary mountain dulcimer Jedi Bing Futch
