Harmonia, with Angela Mariani

It’s the third and final part of our tribute to the ensemble that started the early music movement in the U.S.  We'll hear about the final years of New York Pro Musica Antiqua, and listen to music from one of the earliest fully staged baroque operas to be mounted in America.  Plus, we'll explore some music set to words by famous poets, and hear from a recent recording by the Spanish early music ensemble Capella de Ministrers.

7:00am


Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona

According to legend, musicians Pietro Locatelli and Jean-Marie Leclair met when they performed together. The two virtuoso violinists had very different styles -- Leclair was calm and controlled, while Locatelli made strange faces and noises. After the performance, someone observed, “Leclair plays like an angel, while Locatelli is like a devil.”  This morning’s show will offer heavenly music by both composers.
