with Angela Mariani
That's D'Amore! - Ah, Valentine's Day a time to announce new affections or rekindle an old flame! This week on Harmonia, we explore the sounds of flute d'amore, viola d'amore, and oboe d'amore. These instruments, which bear the suffix d'amore, meaning "of love," produce special sounds due to their unusual construction. Snuggle up with your sweetheart, open up that box of chocolates, and settle in for "that's d'amore!"
