Join host Brad Sayles to explore scores to the live action version of some beloved fairy tales. Composer James Newton Howard seems to be on a role, having recently composed for three prominent films including Snow White and the Huntsman, Peter Pan, and Maleficent. Unlike the scores we focused on from Disney, these will take you on a different path – one that explores the more human and dramatic side of these classic tales. Tune in this Saturday at 7pm or Sunday at 5pm, on Classical 91.7.
