From The Library: Baroque e Nuova

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Tuesday, 21 October, 2008

Today in our From The Library series, we will be presenting 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. 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 works 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.
