with Angela Mariani
Something Borrowed, Something New - They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. This week on Harmonia, we'll explore composers who borrow from each other and themselves to create something brilliantly new and yet familiar. We'll cut across the ages, exploring the Faenza Codex, Handel oratorio, and perhaps the most accomplished borrower of all time Johann Sebastian Bach.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
Musicians have long been inspired by nature from animals and flowers, to weather and seasons, even natural disasters. In honor of the annual April 22 observance of EARTH DAY Sunday Baroque will take you on a musical nature walk.
