From the Library: Music of the Baroque

We have a feast of Baroque music today on the pro­gramme, with an enor­mous col­lec­tion of com­posers includ­ing Bach, Han­del, Rameau, Vival­di and oth­ers, includ­ing per­for­mances of all kinds from solo instru­men­tal­ists to cham­ber groups to full orches­tral ensem­bles, as part of our series From The Library. 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. There are also a cou­ple of sur­pris­es for the sharp-eared.

From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme now at http://main.radioriel.org — or click here to link straight to your play­er if your brows­er is set up to do so. Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin.
