SUNDAY, JANUARY 20
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
This morning, we're taking a look at some recently released recordings of early music. We'll hear music of Neidhart, Ockeghem, Pierre de la Rue, Falvetti and Vivaldi. Plus, we'll feature a classic recording, the first one ever made by the ensemble La Petite Bande.
Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
There's a good reason we don't refer to “Shakespeare's Second Play” or “Monet's Tenth Painting” ... those works of art have descriptive nicknames that make them easier to remember. It works in music, too, this morning's show will offer a few examples of music with meaningful nicknames.
Sunday at the Symphony: Live at the Concertgebouw
Mariss Jansons conducts Anton Bruckner's Symphony #6, and with soloist Dmitri Sitkovetsky, Benjamin Britten's Violin Concerto.
