Liberté, égalité, fraternité! Today is Bastille Day in France, so today's Beautiful Music is a collection of French Baroque music performed by some of today's most impressive musicians. They include French guitarist Raphaël Feuillâtre playing L'aimable by Joseph-Nicolas-Pancrace Royer, harpsichordist Jean Rondeau playing Les Sauvages by Jean-Philippe Rameau, and Daniela Dolci leading Ensemble Musica Fiorita performing the opera Céphale et Procris by Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre.

Suzanne Bona is the host and executive producer of Sunday Baroque, a nationally syndicated weekly radio show of Baroque and early music which she originated on WSHU in 1987.
