Coppelia and Rebecca Clarke

08/27/12 9:00AM By Walter Parker

Our music today will include a suite from Leo Delibes' charming ballet, Coppelia, about a mechanical doll so life-like she inspires love and jealousy.  We'll also listen to the Viola Sonata of British-American composer Rebecca Clarke, who was born on this date in 1886.
