Last week, CapRadio Classical Host Jennifer Reason was joined by Sunday Baroque Host Suzanne Bona for a live performance of Baroque era works and pieces by living composers.
Bona and Reason are both classically trained musicians, Bona playing the flute and Reason the piano. They performed works by composers from George Frideric Handel to John Rutter, Princess Anna Amalia of Prussia to Dianne Goolkasian Rahbee.
They performed in front of a live audience in the CapRadio Community Room, and on the air live for our listeners. CapRadio Classical Music Host Kevin Doherty hosted the performance.
Bona discussed her original plans for a career playing in an orchestra, and the love for chamber music and performances that she later developed.
Watch Bona and Reason perform an unpublished work by Dianne Goolkasian Rahbee:
Bona's visit coincided with the 20th anniversary of Sunday Baroque, and with CapRadio's move to broadcasting all four hours of Sunday Baroque, rather than just two. Starting August 25, you can enjoy Suzanne's thoughtfully curated selections and insightful commentary every Sunday from 7-11 a.m.
