Ep. 46 - SinN: Hogarth in Stravinsky

Since our last episode was a NinS installment, the most natural progression is to follow it with a SinN episode, and we've got a great one this week.

Sometimes it takes time for art to inspire a composer, and this pairing was worth the two-century wait. In the mid-18th century, English painter William Hogarth created a series of 8 works entitled, A Rake's Progress; and not until the middle of the 20th century did Russian composer Igor Stravinsky write an opera inspired by that very series. We're very excited for this combination, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
