THE CONCERT (1600) at Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum features Rebel Baroque Orchestra with countertenor Derek Lee Ragin in Porpora and Handel, and the Borromeo String Quartet in Beethoven. Ragin renders Porpora’s gorgeous “Alto Giove” from his opera Polifemo and Handel’s fiery and melismatic “Rompo i lacci” from Flavio. Beethoven's String Quartet No. 16 in F is famous for the fateful-sounding title scrawled across the manuscript: “The Difficult Decision.” Alongside the beginning chords, he poses a question: “Must it be?” The quartet chews over the question for a while in the introduction until, all of a sudden, the key changes to F Major and Beethoven gives us his answer: “Yes, it must!” ...

The vast treasure of colonial music coming from the archives of the cathedrals, from Brazil to California and from Perú to México City has become a favorite among the listeners of FIESTA! (1400). The program listens to Baroque and galant music produced that side of the Atlantic.

Our BACH CANTATA OF THE WEEK (1500) is the celebratory Cantata 69, “Lobe den Herrn, meine Seele”. The pride of its six movements is the festive opening movement, a setting of Psalm 103 verse 2: “Praise the Lord, my soul, and do not forget the good he has done you!”

EXPLORING MUSIC (1000) is a week-long examination of the development of Bach’s masterpiece, starting with the smaller Lutheran Masses and touching on influences from Palestrina to Bach’s own instrumental and organ works. This segment starts by examining the medieval masses that Bach used as inspiration when composing his B minor Mass. Then we hear the first three sections: "Kyrie eleison", "Christe eleison", and "Kyrie eleison". The segment then ends with a couple of excerpts from pieces that took away from the B minor Mass in some way: Haydn's happy-go-lucky Missa in Tempore Belli (Mass in Time of War), and Beethoven's magnificent Missa Solemnis in D Major.

CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETY OF LINCOLN CENTER (1100) presents Mozart’s Fantasia in D minor for piano, K. 397, and Beethoven’s String Quartet in A minor, Op. 132.

Next on RELEVANT TONES (2000): It is always fascinating to see how our perceptions of music change when paired with visual imagery. With that in mind, several prominent visual artists have been asked to suggest imagery to a wide variety of different pieces by living composers. Relax, close your eyes and enjoy the view!

Afterwards, CROSSOVER (2100) features the album "Héroïque"—tenor Bryan Hymel's freshman solo recording, a portrayal of the heroic figures of French grand opera.

For the Holy Week, THE GOOD MEASURE (1700) explores the elegant tears—the Lachrymae—of John Dowland and music by Dowland and others that sprang from it; as well as music of death and passing sung in late 18th and early 19th century American and English churches, and 20th century instrumental works it inspired. ...

Our BACH CANTATA OF THE WEEK (830) is the celebratory Cantata 69, “Lobe den Herrn, meine Seele”. The pride of its six movements is the festive opening movement, a setting of Psalm 103 verse 2: “Praise the Lord, my soul, and do not forget the good he has done you!”

THE CONCERT (930) follows with two pieces that feature performers in soloist-like roles, but as part of a group. Both works take inspiration from the concerto grosso style—the Baroque form which contrasts small groups of players with a fuller ensemble. A Far Cry and A Roomful of Teeth perform Caroline Shaw's "Music in Common Time"; the Gardner Chamber Orchestra renders Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 4.

COMPACT DISCOVERIES (1100) features the music of 19th century Creole New Orleans composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk.
