Bach and the Masters of the Baroque

Today’s programme on our Main Stream features music from the Baroque era and while it includes the music of J S Bach, it also includes many other composers of the period, both well-known and seldom-heard.

Listeners may find it strange to discover that during his lifetime J S Bach was thought somewhat old-fashioned and behind the times, as other composers adopted more decorated rococo styles. Today, of course, it’s a different matter and there is a vast library of recordings of his work available, a selection of which we will hear during the programme.

Then join us at 11am or 7pm Pacific Time (19:00 or 03:00 GMT) for two more instalments of the classic ZBS radio serial, The Fourth Tower of Inverness, in The ZBS Radio Hour – brought to you by our friends at ZBS Foundation.

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin. If you are in the United States or Canada, please click here to launch the Stream Licensing player. You can also listen via TuneIn.
