Vox Nostra with Vlad Smishkewych Sunday 19 March 2017
Coming up on Vox Nostra on Sunday 26th March.
Early Music Day will have passed, but an early music month filled with historical surprises and delights continues on Vox Nostra. A score of composers who died this day in music history feature on the programme: Isaac, Cabezón, Beethoven, Scheidt, and Lully. And of course, the birthday of the grandpapa of Baroque music, Johann Sebastian Bach still lingers fresh in Vlad's mind, so there is more delightful Bacchiana to be heard on today's programme. The Sunday Sonata features solo works by
Jacob van Eyck, a Dutch composer polymath from the 17th century.
Vox Nostra and RTé lyric fm celebrate the European Day of Music with a fanfare of festivity.
The 21st March marks not only Bach's birthday and the spring equinox, but also the
European Day of Early Music! In this fifth celebration of the special day, RTE lyric fm joins forces with REMA, the European Early Music Network, for a day filled to the brim with a thousand years of glorious music, historic instruments, and live concerts all around Ireland. With just two days until the event, this Sunday's Vox Nostra trumpets the day with--what else?--a fanfare of of historic brass and percussion.
Join Vlad this Sunday at 7am--and the entire lyric fm family on Tuesday the 21st of March--for a celebration of Early Music Day 2017! For more information, visit earlymusicday.eu.
