Show Me the Money - The English poet Robert Graves once said, "There's no money in poetry, but there's no poetry in money." Maybe not, but there is music! We'll explore tuneful treatments of money, wealth, and poverty this week on Harmonia, together with music by composers struggling to balance their finances and their art.
