Sunday Baroque

Sunday Baroque allows you an opportunity each week to explore Baroque and early music (written before 1750). Composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, and Handel were the cornerstones of this era, with masterpieces including the Water Music, Royal Fireworks Music, and the Brandenburg Concertos.

Sunday Baroque celebrates the current wealth of recorded repertoire available, with great performances by yesterday's and today's best performers.

Hour 1:
In 1732, a Hamburg newspaper published an announcement that, “Music lovers can expect in the following year a great instrumental work called Table Music, penned by Telemann.” It was offered by subscription, and more than 200 people signed up to receive installments. You don’t have to sign up – you can just drop by this station to hear some of Telemann’s Table Music this weekend on Sunday Baroque.

Hour 2:
Weekends are a time for resting after all the chaos of the previous week, and recharging for the week ahead. So what better to listen to than Heinrich Biber’s Mystery Sonatas, which were intended to provide just the right setting for quiet contemplation? You can recharge while listening to one of Biber’s reflective Sonatas on Sunday Baroque this weekend.

Hour 3:
Acronym is a 12-member ensemble whose mission is playing “long lost works by forgotten composers.” The group’s new recording is called ODDITIES AND TRIFLES, and it highlights the surprising harmonic and rhythmic twists and turns used by composer Giovanni Valentini. You’ll have a chance to audition it, along with other new releases, on Sunday Baroque this weekend.

Hour 4:
The musical world is vast and exciting, with outstanding ensembles all across the globe, and you hear many of them every week on Sunday Baroque. This weekend, a stellar group from Montreal plays a Lenten Sonata, an iconic German orchestra plays Vivaldi, and the American Bach Soloists play a Cantata by their namesake. Those are just a few highlights of Sunday Baroque this week.
