He is best remembered as the author of “The Three Musketeers” and “The Count of Monte Cristo.” However, Alexandre Dumas churned out prose on historical subjects of all kinds, and he did so by the yard.  Tune in for incidental music written for his play, “Caligula,” by Gabriel Fauré; ballet music from an opera, “Ascanio,” after a novel featuring Benvenuto Cellini, by Camille Saint-Saëns; a poetic monologue, “Joan of Arc at the Stake,” by Franz Liszt; and a suite for symphonic brass, “The Three Musketeers,” by George William Hespe.  It’s one for all, and all for one, this Sunday at 10 pm.
