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.
"Tinker, Tailor, / Soldier, Sailor, / Rich Man, Poor Man, / Beggar Man, Thief..."
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.
Music by cabinet makers, poets, world leaders, who ducked, or bucked, their non-musical lives to make music of lasting power. Plus, the flute in consort...
Two new releases of music by John Dowland, a composer whose works are still being performed, admired and enjoyed.
We’re marking the birth of John Dowland and the death of Gesualdo, and we’re saying goodbye to a friend, oboist Washington McClain.
We’re shining a spotlight on soprano Julianne Baird. We’ll also hear a modern approach to English renaissance music on a featured release by Joel Frederiksen.
A re-issue of Alfred Deller's 1978 recording of Dowland lute songs, and Italian chitarrone music performed by Jakob Lindberg.
Music for two... two lutes, two vihuelas, and two new releases.
We'll hear merchant cries from London, witness the marriage of music and ritual, and dine at a Musical Banquet. For dessert: a featured release from A Chantar.
