Classical Music Highlight: Sunday Baroque
Music from Germany, England, France, and Italy is regularly featured on Sunday Baroque. But in the 1600s and 1700s – during the baroque era – Sweden came into its own as an important cultural center. It was home to composers such as Johann Helmich Roman, known as the “father” of Swedish music, and Johann Agrell. You can hear some of their music this week when Sunday Baroque takes a little Scandinavian holiday.
