Celebrated violinist and chief conductor of the Mexico City Philharmonic Scott Yoo discovers the secret stories behind some of the greatest classical music ever composed in the second season of "Great Performances: Now Hear This," which begins this fall.

The critically acclaimed documentary miniseries that merges music, storytelling, travel and culture returns with four new episodes focusing on signature works by Classical period composers Haydn, Schubert, Mozart and Beethoven beginning Friday, September 18 at 9 p.m. on PBS, pbs.org/nowhearthis, and the PBS Video app. Each episode traces the creation of different masterworks and explores the composer’s profound, lasting cultural impact.  

“We focused on baroque-era composers last season,” shares Yoo. “This season, we uncover the fascinating histories and modern reverberations of composers from the Classical era.”
