From the Library: A Baroque Festival

in Uncategorized

by Elrik Merlin on Thursday, 9 April, 2009

Today Elrik Merlin presents a concert of Baroque works from a varied range of composers including Bach, Handel, Rameau, Arne and others, including performances of all kinds from solo instrumentalists to chamber groups to full orchestral ensembles, as part of our series From The Library. You’ll hear recorder concertos from Vivaldi, keyboard variations from Bach and the original setting of Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks and both Water Music suites.

In addition we will be playing some modern pieces inspired by the Baroque, including a few jazz-influenced settings of works by Bach and Purcell.

From the Library is produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with the Caledon Library in Second Life. Today’s programme was produced by Elrik Merlin.
