Arts and Music airing this week

In the debut episode of a 6-part series exploring what it means to be musical, renowned percussionist Steven Schick presents the origins and global development of percussion-based composition as a "physical art." The series is sponsored by the Making of the Modern World program at Eleanor Roosevelt College, UC San Diego.

Renowned pianist and educator Cecil Lytle performs two late signature works by Ludwig van Beethoven: the monumental Piano Sonata No. 29 in B-flat Major ("Das Hammerklavier") and the dramatic Piano Sonata No. 32 in C Minor, Beethoven's final composition for piano.

Composed in the 1830s and rarely performed today, Lugwig Maurer's sprightly "SInfonia Concertante" is a showcase for four virtuoso violinists. Renowned conductor Kent Nagano leads the SummerFest Chamber Orchestra.
