SUNDAY, JANUARY 19TH
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
We're bringing you the first in a series of segments called MyTunes in which we ask people who work and play in early music the simple question: What are you listening to right now? This morning’s respondent is a specialist in playing recorders and historical flutes, Alison Melville. We'll also explore music written by the renaissance lute player Diomedes Cato and hear The Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado perform in a featured release of baroque music from Italy.
Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
Did you know that this is National Hobby Month? Music was frequently a hobby for people with day jobs in non-musical fields, and this morning’s show will feature music by some of those talented and passionate dilettantes.
