Song: Mirror of the World Radio Series
Program 13: The ’89s

To sum up the series, we look at the world in three landmark years: 1789, the year of the French Revolution; 1889, the year of the Paris Exposition; and 1989, when the Berlin Wall came down and the AIDS epidemic surged up. Music we hear ranges from the Marseillaise to Massenet to John Adams, with Leonard Bernstein as a guiding force.
