 6 AM
with Angela Mariani
The Other Guy - What if your name was famous, but your work wasn't? For those composers who share names with their more glorified relations, it's all too easy to fade into the shadows…until today! This week on Harmonia, we're devoting a full hour to the also-rans: the Bachs who weren't Johann Sebastian, the Purcells who weren't Henry. We'll sample music by the other guy – or girl – this hour plus a featured release of music from the Spanish Renaissance.
 7 AM - 11 AM

The world's largest annual gathering of twins takes place in Twinsburg, Ohio on the first full weekend in August. Sunday Baroque will get into the spirit by featuring some talented and noteworthy twins in music.
