 6 AM
with Angela Mariani
The Humble Hurdy-Gurdy - The hum of droning strings and the dancing melodies that spin forth from its keyboard have, since the 11th century, made the hurdy-gurdy a popular folk instrument for both solo and ensemble playing. During the 18th century, it also became a popular chamber music instrument, with its rustic sound often meant to invoke a pastoral scene. This week on Harmonia, join us as we explore the art of the humble hurdy-gurdy!
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
Musicians' instruments are among their most important tools. Sunday Baroque will offer you a chance to hear a few performers using extraordinary instruments, including antique trumpets, a golden flute, and instruments made by the venerable craftsman Antonio Stradivari.
