FOLK & OTHER
Sunday Baroque features Baroque and early music written before 1750.
This week: People sometimes think of Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial beginning of Summer. This week, Sunday Baroque will offer a Concerto by Antonio Vivaldi as a reminder that the Spring Season is still with us. It's just one highlight of Sunday Baroque this Memorial Day weekend.
Every week on Sunday Matinée, host David Bouchier puts a different spin on classical music.
This week: For Memorial Day weekend David Bouchier has a program of musical memorials and dedications. The obscure sixteenth century Flemish statesman, the Count of Egmont, has a memorial more durable than anything in stone: Beethoven's Egmont Overture. Hear the fascinating stories of individuals and historical events immortalized in music, in a program called "Musical Memorials."
Classics for Kids host Naomi Lewin focuses on a different composer each month, with each week’s program highlighting a different aspect of that composer’s life and work. Weekly topics may include the composer’s life, a trip through the music and its instrumentation, an explanation of the musical form, the story behind the piece or connections between composers.
