Jean Francois Paillard was the leading French conductor in the renaissance of Baroque music. With his chamber orchestra, Paillard recorded Baroque classics, and in the 1970s he found gold when his recording of the Pachelbel Canon sold more LPs than the Beatles.

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will revisit some of Paillard's triumphs with familiar and unfamiliar music.
