Laughter and tears: two of the most human forms of expression. This week on Harmonia, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll sample a recording by John Holloway.
We're listening to music about music on this edition of Harmonia!
We're exploring paeans to solitude, songs of unrequited love—even a sumptuous soundscape sprung from a single note.
Love’s gone bad this hour on Harmonia, as we explore music by—and for—the brokenhearted.
For many composers grappling with the death of a colleague or patron, the best memorial proved to be...music. We’ll hear a selection of musical memorials.
We’re heading into battle this hour, for a sampling of music by, for, or about soldiers.
We’re celebrating gardens and harvesting musical blooms from across the centuries—flowers and fruit and everything green.
"Tinker, Tailor, / Soldier, Sailor, / Rich Man, Poor Man, / Beggar Man, Thief..."
Music by some “cranky” organists from Restoration England! Plus, we continue our look at theorist Athanasius Kircher and feature a recent CD by Chatham Baroque.
We asked musician Alison Melville: "What are you listening to right now?" Also, music by Diomedes Cato, and a CD from The Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado.
