SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1ST
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
A lot of parents aren't thrilled with the idea of their child pursuing a career in music. Apparently, this isn't a new sentiment. This morning, we'll hear music by astrologers, cabinet makers, poets, and others who ducked, or bucked, their non-musical lives to compose music of lasting power.
Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
Every year, Suzanne reviews the most appealing recent recordings, and creates a list of suggestions for holiday gift-giving for the baroque music lover on your list. Throughout the month on Sunday Baroque you can audition her recommendations from the annual Sunday Baroque Holiday Gift list.
