6:00 pm 
Fall In Love with Music  "How Listening Affects Us"  Why do we feel so emotionally affected by certain moments in a musical composition...to the point of getting goose bumps or even to the point of tears? Humorously, this episode begins with 'Brain Day' on the Fall in Love with Music set. 'Effective Surprise' is demonstrated with a short, tonal Bartok piano composition. The importance of developing flexibility as a listener is emphasized by exploring a fugue by Handel. 'Tension and Release,' as a desired musical outcome from a composer's perspective and its effect on the listener, is illustrated with the enthralling orchestral music of Rachmaninoff.G

Fall In Love with Music  "Paragraphs Without Words"  Episode Six introduces the idea that perceptive listeners learn to absorb larger segments of musical information - similar to paragraphs in written and spoken language. The music of jazz composer Thelonius Monk is first played by Maestro Maull and then by the Dan Crisci Quartet to illustrate this aspect of listening. Later, Maestro Maull plays music by Robert Schumann to further stress the importance of noticing larger musical 'paragraphs' or sections, opening the way to also discuss 'program music' as opposed to 'abstract music.' The episode ends by revisiting open mindedness and a challenge to recognize a familiar melody 'hidden' in a Mozart composition.G
