Well boys and girls it’s two days before Halloween and we are broadcasting a concert featuring scary baroque and baroque like music. On the program tonight…
Marais: The Gallbladder Operation…very scary!
Froberger: Tombeau on the death of Mr. Blancheroche
Whear: The Cask of Amontillado
Before that we are presenting selections from a concert entitled ‘We’ll Always have Paris”
French baroque music by Marin Marais, Leclair, Barriere. With Sarah Cunningham, viola de gamba. Cynthia Roberts, violin; Allen Whear, cello; Leon Schelhase, harpsichord.
On a very sad note Allen Whear the Director of Pro Musica Rara passed away this year after a prolonged battle with cancer. We are dedicating tonight’s Music in Maryland to his memory. We all miss his amazing intellect, wit and fine musicianship.
