 6 AM
with Angela Mariani
Royal Composers - We often hear music for royal occasions┬-coronations, weddings, and more. But what about music written by royalty? This week, we┬'ll explore music by rulers of Great Britain, Russia, Prussia, and Portugal. Our featured release is Fair and Princely Branches: Renaissance Music for the Jacobean Princes.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
Although many of the most prominent Baroque era musicians lived long, full lives, some promising musical talents from the Baroque era died quite young. A rising star in Italy ┬ľ Giovanni Pergolesi ┬ľ succumbed to tuberculosis at 26. Another Italian talent, Anna Bon, only lived into her late 20s. We┬'ll never know what else they might have done had they lived longer, but we CAN appreciate what they accomplished in their abbreviated careers. Sunday Baroque will highlight music by a few of these talented but short-lived composers.
