Every Once In A While

Inside Music: Every Once In A While, Musical borrowing & reworking

Maestro Maull explores the unsettling feeling we experience every once in a while when listening to music… when suddenly we think: “Wait a minute, didn’t someone else write that?” Examples are drawn from complimentary “quotes,” to mere coincidence, to outright theft!  As composer Igor Stravinsky said: “Good composers borrow… great ones steal.”

Inside Music with George Marriner Maull on WWFM The Classical Network is sponsored by Glenmede, an independent trust company providing investment and wealth management services with offices in Princeton, Morristown and Philadelphia.

Additional sponsorship of Inside Music has been provided by Alfonso and Diana Finocchiaro.
