“Baroque Spring” on BBC radio 3
Starts on Sunday 3 March 2013
Painting by Evaristo Baschenis (1617–1677)
Still Life of Musical Instruments, 1650, oil on canvas
A month-long Baroquefest with live concerts, discussion, masterclasses, comedy and poetry put together to bring alive one of the most significant periods of musical development and discovery. The composer of the week is Handel so expect some opera goodies ( that Rinaldo from the Proms ) as well as harpsichord recitals, Buxtehude from Oxford, Bach orchestral suites from Shrewsbury and a stellar line-up of performers.
You need to go to the BBC radio 3 web site to appreciate all that is going on but there should be something to suit everyone. Enjoy.
