with Angela Mariani
A Mighty Fortress - "A mighty fortress is our God," reads the text of a popular English-language translation of Luther's classic hymn, "a bulwark never failing." Martin Luther was a great fan of music, and in honor of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, on Harmonia this week, we're exploring Lutheran composers from Praetorius to Bach to Mendelssohn.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
Singing was Johann Pisendel's introduction to music when he was still just a child. When the boy soprano's voice changed, he switched to playing violin and discovered his true musical gift. Johann Pisendel also composed music, and you can hear one of his Violin Sonatas from a recently released CD on Sunday Baroque.
