Early Music Now (EMN 18-34)

Sounds of Distant Lands

The music on week's program was inspired by sounds far distant from composer's home. Italians Geminiani and Matteis were captivated by Scottish melodies, Telemann wrote a Polish Concerto, and Bach was fascinated by the sounds of Italy. We'll hear from the Palladian Ensemble, Juilliard Baroque, and Jordi Savall.

Francesco Geminiani: Scots Airs The Palladian Ensemble
Nicola Matteis Bizzarie all’imor Scozzeze The Palladian Ensemble
Georg Philipp Telemann Concerto Polonois in G major The English Concert
Marin Marais Suite d’un Gout Etranger (selections) Jordi Savall, viola da gamba
J.S. Bach Italian Concerto Gustav Leonhardt, harpsichord
Francois Couperin L’Imperiale (Selections) Juilliard Baroque
