From the Library: A Baroque Extravaganza

Today, Elrik Mer­lin presents a pro­gramme 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.

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.

We’ll also be telling you about a forth­com­ing new reg­u­lar fea­ture of Sat­ur­days on Radio Riel, start­ing on Jan­u­ary 16th: The ZBS Radio Hour, where we’ll be play­ing some sim­ply won­der­ful radio seri­als from our friends at ZBS Foun­da­tion – at both US- and EU-friend­ly times.
