Coffee and Enchantment: Start your Friday with Vivace!

On this Friday's Vivace, be prepared to be enchanted and uplifted with some delightful music.

The first hour will be filled by just one work, Twenty-five Etudes for Guitar by French composer Napoleon Coste.

At 7 o'clock, we'll enjoy a symphony by Antonio Rosetti and at around 7:20 am, be prepared for some true enchantment as we bring you two versions of the Estonian Lullaby by Arvo Part.

We have a clarinet quintet by Franz Anton Hoffmeister, and the Duo in G, by Ferdinando Carulli.

At 8 o'clock, we have another special treat as we mark Reformation Day: the original version of Psalm 46 with music by Martin Luther followed by the famous arrangement of it by Johann Sebastian Bach from his Cantata BWV 80, which we know as the hymn "A Mighty Fortress is our God".

Later in the hour, we have a rare concerto for recorder and some delightful music of Mozart and Chopin to complete the program.  All in all, we promise you a rich bounty of musical offerings on this week's Vivace.  As ever, I look forward to the pleasure of your company, 6-9 am this Friday.
