From lover’s lip locks to sacred benedictions, kisses have inspired poets and musicians for millennia. A kiss can mean love or death, hello or goodbye. It can be saintly or salacious or shocking! This week on Harmonia, we bring you kisses in all times and tempos, plus, we’ll feature a recording aptly entitled Comédie et Tragédie…because kissing can be like that too. Won’t you pucker up and join us?
Week of October 19
Music seems to run in the family for some genetic bloodlines! Glance back through history and you might notice that there are lots of children who followed in their fathers’ musical footsteps. This week on Harmonia, we’re looking at families wired for song including the Praetoriuses, the Manfredinis, the Berlins, and the Forquerays. Plus, we’ll feature releases from Jordi Savall and his two musical offspring. (Repeat of June 15, 2015) LISTEN HERE
