 6 AM
with Angela Mariani
Fyer, Fyer! - Ever since some bright human ancestor got the idea to rub two sticks together, fire has enthralled us. It's the quintessential double-edged sword, protecting and nourishing when controlled, destroying lives when not. This week on Harmonia, we'll watch the sparks fly as we survey music inspired by fire.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
For many years after Johann Sebastian Bach's death in 1750, his music was on the back burner not performed very much, and not particularly popular. But 19th century musician Felix Mendelssohn revered the Baroque era musician, and staged a performance of Bach's ST MATTHEW PASSION that began to shift public opinion of Bach. Sunday Baroque will highlight some of the music that reintroduced Bach to modern audiences.
