Faun and Nymph by Merse Paul von Szinyei (oil on panel) by Hungarian painter Merse Paul von Szinyei (1867)

When people talk about why they enjoy classical music, one thing that often comes up is the idea that at least SOME classical music is relaxing. In some cases, there is science to back that up. On this episode of Performance Today, kick back, rest your head and enjoy a Camerata Pacifica performance of Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun.
