From The Library: Baroque e Nuova

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.
