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: February 1, 2015

Hour 1:
British cellist and conductor Julian Lloyd Webber was meant for a life in music … his big brother is composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, their father William was an organist and composer, and their mother Jeanne was a piano teacher. Julian Lloyd Webber’s latest recording is a collaboration with his cello-playing wife. You’ll hear a selection from it on Sunday Baroque this weekend.{Photo:

Hour 2:
A “broken” consort … a concerto on a violin without one of the strings … and instruments that are intentionally MISTUNED! What’s going on? If you’d like to find out, stop by Sunday Baroque this weekend and hear those and other perfectly executed performances.

Hour 3:
In his lifetime, Maurice Greene was a celebrated composer who worked with George Frideric Handel’s, Jeremiah Clarke and William Boyce, among others. His reputation had faded over time, but the Chicago group BAROQUE BAND is revisiting his artistry with their recent recording of his overtures. You’ll hear one of them on Sunday Baroque this weekend.

Hour 4:
Englishman Robert Woodcock was an avid painter in the early 1700s, and was passionate about depicting ships and maritime scenes. Woodcock was also a musician who was credited with writing some of the earliest Flute Concertos. Who knows what else he might have accomplished if only he’d lived past age 37? You’ll hear one of Robert Woodcock’s surviving concertos this week on Sunday Baroque.
