Main: A Baroque Festival

Today we present a con­cert of Baroque works from a var­ied range of com­posers includ­ing Bach, Vival­di, Han­del, Rameau, Arne, Boyce 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, Han­del’s Music for the Roy­al Fire­works and Water Music suites, and works by Boyce includ­ing the Shep­herd’s Lot­tery.

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.

The Black Mass

Then join us at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic Time — 19:00 and 03:00 in the UK — for the third sto­ry in our his­toric and down­right scary radio dra­ma series The Black Mass, cre­at­ed by Erik Bauers­feld and John Whit­ing in the 1960s and 1970s at KPFA in Berke­ley, Cal­i­for­nia.

Tonight we bring you a clas­sic ghost sto­ry by M R James (1862–1936) — the man who essen­tial­ly rede­fined the genre at the dawn of the 20th Cen­tu­ry and is today regard­ed as the writer of the finest tales of their kind — The Ash Tree, con­cern­ing strange events at Cas­tring­ham Hall. Don’t miss it!
