OraTV — Scandalous Overtures

OraTV: Scandalous Overtures — Robert Greenberg
Together with OraTV CEO Jon Housman, I have developed a show entitled: Scandalous Overtures in which each episode focuses on a conspiracy, or a peccadillo, or a dirty little secret from the life of a composer.

Aside from the purely salacious, voyeuristic joy of dishing dirt on famous dead people, the point of this series is to render composers, who for reasons mysterious to me are among the most hallowed of historical figures, more real, more human, and more accessible. By doing so, this series is ultimately intended to make their music – which is so often treated like some supra-human thing – more real, more human, and more accessible as well.
