A Baroque Collection

Today marks the birth­days of three well-known Baroque com­posers — Tele­mann (1681), CPE Bach (1714) and Couperin (1755) — and we’ll be hear­ing some of their music today along with oth­er selec­tions from this era of ele­gance and deli­cious twid­dly bits.

The pro­gramme focus­es pri­mar­i­ly on small­er ensem­bles and solo instru­ments, so lis­ten out for some of Tele­man­n’s pieces for recorder, for exam­ple; some ele­gant trios by Couperin for bas­soon, cel­lo and harp­si­chord; plus some gor­geous key­board pieces.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. To lis­ten, click here to start your play­er, if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to do so. In the Unit­ed States, please use http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel/tune_in
