 6 AM
with Angela Mariani
Three Centuries of Patronage: The Medici Musical Legacy - The House of Medici ruled Florence for the better part of 300 years. Their patronage of the arts reached from Dufay to Handel, and this week on Harmonia we'll explore this wide swath of music history through the Medici lens. From the beginnings of Italian opera to the perfection of the baroque concerto by Vivaldi, the Medici influence helped to foster some of the greatest works of art through three centuries.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
Johann Sebastian Bach's artistry is viewed by many as the "gold standard" for musicians to emulate. Sunday Baroque celebrates some of Bach's contemporaries, including a German colleague who was called the "Bach of the lute," one praised as the "French Bach," the so-called "Spanish Bach" and music by the one and only Johann Sebastian Bach himself.
