Host Stephen Peithman explores ideas, themes and people shared by various classical works, Saturday afternoons at 4.
"I've always been intrigued by the connections between different compositions and/or composers," explains host Stephen Peithman, "and on Connections we explore those connections in a way that's both informative and entertaining. We focus on works that display a strong influence of another work or composer, that draw directly from other works, or that share a common theme or inspiration. There are great stories to be told--both comic and dramatic--and a lot of great music, too."
Stephen has been contributing shows to Capital Public Radio since 1983, first with "Musical Stages," and now, "Connections."
He also is an author, including The Annotated Tales of Edgar Allan Poe and seven theatre-related books, and has served as Executive Editor of Stage Directions magazine, Managing Editor of San Francisco magazine, and Staff Editor for Sunset magazine. A singer since his early years, he has performed with chamber ensembles, as a soloist, and as a performer in opera and musical theatre.
