Robert Schumann Wikipedia

Today's show features performances from special places, and also music about special places. From a lonely Scottish island (Peter Maxwell Davies'"Farewell to Stromness") to the top of a Norwegian mountain (Ole Bull's "A Mountain Vision"), we'll feature music that evokes that special sense of place. Plus, Robert Schumann's third symphony, about another very special place, the Rhine River.
