Beautiful Music NOW - Georg Philipp Telemann

On this Labor Day holiday weekend, today's Beautiful Music is by one of the hardest-working musicians of the baroque era: Georg Philipp Telemann. In 1998, the Guinness Book of World Records named Telemann as the most prolific composer for writing approximately 3,000 (or more!) musical works. One of Telemann's compositions is this Concerto for 2 Violas, played by viola soloists Hiwote Tadesse & Asja Frank Perčić with the Croatian Baroque Ensemble.

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.
