SUNDAY, JUNE 9TH
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
This morning, we listen to music from the distant past alongside related music by living composers from several recently released recordings. The Brisk Recorder Quartet plays music by Sweelinck and contemporary music inspired by Sweelinck; New York Polyphony sings a 2009 paraphrase a 14th-century Machaut rondeau; Accordone performs a piece from a 21st century chamber opera on Baroque period instruments; and much more.
Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
Poet Robert Burns wrote about the “ … red, red rose that’s newly sprung in June.” Maybe that’s why this is National Rose Month. In honor of the occasion, Sunday Baroque will feature music inspired by the fragrant symbol of love and friendship, beauty and elegance, as well as thorny consequences.
