045 - Music and Victory Odes

In this episode, we discuss the various types of ancient Greek musical instruments during the Classical Period and their uses (0:53) and the lives and works of the three great 5th century BC lyric poets who pioneered the epinikion (victory ode)—Simonides (12:52) and Bacchylides and Pindar (28:14).

    1. Thanks Mikel! I have zero musical skill but I do find the sound of the harp soothing :-)
