with Angela Mariani
Music of Mondonville - Although well known in his day, the music of French baroque composer Jean-Joseph de Mondonville has, nowadays, mostly been forgotten. Join us this week on Harmonia as we explore the music of a man who, in his day, enjoyed fame, fortune, and the patronage of one of Louis XV's most important mistresses, Madame de Pompadour.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
One of the must-see landmarks in Venice, Italy is Piazza San Marco the city's political, religious and social hub. It is home to a palace, a bell tower, and St. Mark's Basilica, where generations of extraordinary musicians have worked.
