Harmonia
with Angela Mariani
Elegies - What's the right way to commemorate loss? For many composers grappling with the death of a colleague or patron, the best memorial proved to be... music. Medieval-, renaissance-, and baroque-era composers penned lavish, sometimes tormented, elegies for departed mentors, partners, and friends. This week on Harmonia, we'll hear a selection of musical memorials.
