The archtype single symphony guy is Cesar Franck, and I haven't heard it in quite a while.

Hello Terrance,

First I would like to express how much I appreciate your show. Many evenings it is my driving companion/soundtrack on the journey home while I decompress and reflect after teaching ballet to a spectrum of children.
It affords me the opp. to hear music I many times have not heard and information that I would not otherwise have which is a treat, inspiring. I must admit I enjoyed when you spoke over the music at times for the information gained.
I do have a question to pose about music.
I work for a summer ballet camp in VT and this year we are planning to take a production of Snow White to Scotland. We are in the process of researching diff. productions and choreography. I was wondering if you had any suggestions of music that you think might lend themselves to this story, in the vein of Prokofiev's Cinderella or Peter and the Wolf. Any recommendations are welcome.
Thank you for your time and your work!
