Bach and the Masters of the Baroque

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

So in amongst the famous works today, we hope you’ll hear some music you’ve nev­er encoun­tered before.

Lis­ten­ers may find it strange to learn that dur­ing his life­time 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 at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic Time (19:00 and 03:00 GMT) tune in for The Black Mass. This week: The Feed­er by Carl Lin­der.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin and pro­duced by Radio Riel. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme in-world now at, or sim­ply click here to start your play­er, if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to do so. Lis­ten­ers in the Unit­ed States are encour­aged to tune in using this link:
