Harmonia, with Angela Mariani

We’ll take a whirlwind musical tour of London this morning.  We’ll see how royal patronage helped composers flourish through the centuries, and take a peek at some of the city's oldest and most renowned musical centers, including St. James's Palace and Westminster Cathedral.

7:00am


Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona

Many musicians have been immortalized by their fellow creative artists in other disciplines with poems, statues and paintings. British portrait master Thomas Gainsborough used some of his musician friends as subjects, Robert Browning wrote a poem about an 18th-century Venetian musician, and Leonardo da Vinci painted a few of his musical contemporaries.  This morning’s show will feature their music, and their stories.

Carnegie Hall Live

Daniel Barenboim conducts his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra in an all-Beethoven program.  We’ll hear the symphonies #2 and 9, with the Westminster Symphonic Choir and soloists.  Established in 1999 as a workshop for young musicians from Israel, Palestine, and other Arab countries, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra has been described by one of its members as “a human laboratory that can express to the whole world how to cope with each other.”

6:00pm
