    Love “Age of Anxiety” but have trouble with Auden plus “Age.” Review avoids this angst. Thank you.

    Does the program of a musical work always matter? I have been to Prague and seen the Vltava River from the Charles Bridge, but it didn’t yield a single insight about Smetana’s “Moldau” tone poem.

    KMW: Sometimes, yes. Knowing about the actual paintings in Moussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” is elucidating, and knowing some of the events depicted in the Richard Strauss tone poems makes them more endurable.
