Sunday Baroque features Baroque and early music written before 1750. Composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, and Handel were the cornerstones of this era, with favorites including The Water Music, Royal Fireworks Music, and the Brandenburg Concertos. In the past several years, there has been a resurgence of interest in this early music, with many young, innovative performers and ensembles hitting the scene with their own interpretations of the repertoire.
Sunday is one day of the week that most people can choose how they want to spend their day: sleeping in, gathering with family or friends for a leisurely brunch, going to worship, or relaxing alone with the Sunday paper and a steaming mug of coffee. Because it is private "down time" for many, it means an opportunity to listen to the radio with the pleasing sounds of Sunday Baroque, providing a perfect soundtrack for this unique day of the week.
Sunday Baroque celebrates the current wealth of recorded music with great performances by yesterday's and today's best performers.
