Sunday Baroque

Sundays at 8 a.m. on IPR Classical

Sunday is one day of the week that most people can choose how they want to spend their day: sleeping in, gathering with family or friends for a leisurely brunch, going to worship, or relaxing alone with the Sunday paper and a steaming mug of coffee. Because it is private "down time" for many, it means an opportunity to listen to the radio with the pleasing sounds of Sunday Baroque, providing a perfect soundtrack for this unique day of the week.

Ways to Connect

Join Suzanne Bona & Barney Sherman on Sunday starting at 11AM for an on-air Bach Party. They'll share some of their favorite Bach recordings - and also some of yours! For the broadcast, Suzanne will pre-empt the last hour of Sunday Baroque, and co-host with Barney until 1 PM; then he'll continue until 4. Do you have a special favorite Bach recording? Let us know what it is and why you like it. Email (put "Bach Favorite" or something like that in the subject line), or go to our Facebook post about the Bach Favorites Party and comment there.

Sunday Baroque

 Suzanne Bona, flutist and host of Sunday Baroque, knows her Bach. In honor of his birthday, this Sunday from 8am to noon she's devoting her entire program to his music. Suzanne appreciates many different styles of Bach playing and has a keen ear for performances that turn out special. Which works and recordings will she choose? Tune in and find out!

Afterwards, Barney will host four hours of music that's NOT by Bach - although some of it will be by Bach's family members, predecessors and devotees. Stay tuned to hear that (and also, Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony).
