Autumn progresses on EXPLORING MUSIC (1000). Joseph Haydn composed his oratorio "The Seasons" at 74, a task he found difficult as his health was deteriorating. The Freiburg Baroque Orchestra performs a "hound dog" aria, the hunters' chorus and the final celebration from "Autumn". Then, we experience the season in a Japanese village with Kainuma and in Warsaw with Ligeti. Just as leaves change color in autumn, so do the interpretations of an autumnal composition. We hear two versions of Brubeck's "Autumn in Our Town" and three performances of Duke's "Autumn in New York."

Following on THE CONCERT (1100), violinist Angelo Xiang Yu performs Vitali's Chaconne in G minor for violin and piano, Claude Debussy's Violin Sonata in G minor and Karol Szymanowski's Nocturne and Tarentella, Op. 28, together with pianist Dina Vainshtein.

On EXPLORING MUSIC (1000), autumn themes continue with varying emotions. Giuseppe Verdi's peppy Four Seasons ballet was written after the French management of the Paris Opera demanded dance to be written into his Sicilian Vespers. Schwantner wrote a piece for solo horn in "Beyond Autumn". Piazzolla's "Fall Tango" transports us to Buenos Aires simmering down after a robust summer.

HARMONIA (1100) shines a spotlight on soprano Julianne Baird. We'll also enjoy a sampling of Canada's "early" traditional music scene and hear a modern approach to English renaissance music on a featured release by Joel Frederiksen.
