A few links for the end of the week.

Here are a few gems, some familiar and others, less so—a new recording by a beloved soprano, a Stradivarius “taste test,” an eye-opening graphic animation, and a Handel experiment at the Barbican Centre in London.

  • French soprano Sandrine Piau has just released a new CD.
  • Not everyone prefers a Stradivarius violin (or can tell that they’re listening to one).
  • A new way of “looking” at baroque music.
  • Five modern composers take on Handel. Why? Because we’re in a Handel Year.

In case you missed them, here are this week’s posts:

“Questions for Steven Rickards” – The American countertenor answers questions about his voice type.

“Kate Clark ‘followed a sound’” – A sneak peak at an upcoming Harmonia program featuring the Australian early flutist, Kate Clark.

“What’s on Youtube: The Goldberg Variations” – One of the most famous Bach works and its popularity on Youtube.
