SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23RD
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
We're listening for echoes this morning. Spelunkers, churchgoers, and young children in bathrooms have always loved to hear their own voices bouncing back to them, and composers haven't been immune to the lure of echoing sound. We'll hear musical echoes, short and long, from across Europe. Plus, we'll explore some curious inventions from composer Biagio Marini in our featured recording.
Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
Some of the most beloved and familiar baroque music was composed by George Frideric Handel, who was born on this date in 1685. Sunday Baroque will host a festive birthday party with music by Handel and a few of his friends and friendly rivals.
