Harmonia, with Angela Mariani

Fountains of wine, acres of cloth woven with gold, over a thousand crumpets!  In 1520, in a field outside Calais, kings Henry and Francis met for seventeen days of celebration and pomp.  The men were supposed to be cementing peace, but instead they were competing for power. We'll explore the musical side of this competition with music by English and French Tudor composers. We'll also hear music from a featured release by Boston Camerata.

7:00am


Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona

The baroque era spanned the years 1600-1750, but there is still “new” baroque music thanks to outstanding contemporary performances and their new recordings. This morning’s show will give you a chance to audition a few of the best newly-released recordings of baroque music.

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, with Jim Cunningham

Manfred Honeck closed the 2011/12 season with two momentous works.  The PSO’s Gorton-Van Hoesen family (James Gorton, oboe; Gretchen Van Hoesen, harp; and their daughter, harpist Heidi Van Hoesen Gorton) joined forces in the Concert Piece for Oboe, Two Harps and Orchestra by Eugene Goosens.  And, the Symphony’s Mahler cycle continued with Gustav Mahler’s Symphony #6 (Tragic).
