Harmonia Podcast #106: J.S. Bach, Bononcini, and the Gaultiers

The Ramée label is a small but terrific company that has released some great recordings. I have yet to listen to something of theirs that wasn’t exciting or thought provoking in a positive way. For next season, I’ll be putting together a show that will highlight some of the label’s new recordings, including the three on this week’s podcast.

I especially like the recording of Giovanni Bononcini‘s San Nicola di Bari, a work that was one of his most successful. I am partial to the music of this era (late 17th-century Rome), yet Les Muffatti’s performance is excellent and well-worth repeated listenings.

Listen:
