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.

Sunday Baroque Listings: December 21, 2014

Hour 1:
Giovanni Antonio Guido was an Italian musician born in the late 1600s. He composed music for the Four Seasons that some people think may have inspired his more famous contemporary, Antonio Vivaldi. Sunday Baroque will mark the Winter Solstice this weekend with Giovanni Antonio Guido’s WINTER Concerto, and other music for the season. They’re just a few highlights of Sunday Baroque this weekend.

Hour 2:

As you and your family are making final preparations for the Christmas holiday – whether it’s last minute shopping, wrapping gifts, or traveling to your holiday destination – Sunday Baroque this weekend will celebrated with warm and meaningful music from a much simpler and less frenetic time.

Hour 3:
The snowdrop flower inspired Hans Christian Andersen’s story ‘The Snowdrop,’ and in the biblical story, in which the snowdrop bursts forth to comfort Adam and Eve after they were cast out of the Garden of Eden. The flower also inspired Scottish composer James Oswald for one of his Winter Suites. You’ll hear Oswald’s SNOWDROP and other seasonal music this week on Sunday Baroque.

Hour 4:
You know the old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Well, every week on Sunday Baroque you hear music that IS Baroque … and this week you’ll also hear a suite for “Broken” consort that requires no fixing. It’s a recent release from a group named Wayward Sisters, and it’s on this year’s Sunday Baroque Holiday Gift List. You’ll have a chance to audition it, and other gift list cds, on Sunday Baroque this week.
