Classical KUSC



A Musical Offering

with Alan Chapman

(Sundays, 9-11am)

The Baroque period, from the innovations of Monteverdi to the mastery of J.S. Bach, marks the beginning of “modern” music. Hosted by Alan Chapman, this two-hour weekly program offers splendid performances of this rich repertoire.

    So glad that Alan Chapman was able to continue with a Baroque themed show on Sunday mornings. I loved "Baroque and Beyond" and was afraid it might not be continued after Brian Lauritzen moved over to the "Soul Music" spot.

    So why was the name of the show changed? Maybe it doesn't go "beyond" anymore? Oh well, call it whatever you like as long as you keep the show.

    Thanks, Alan! You're great.

    The Baroque is my very favorite period of music and your show is my absolute favorite on KUSC. You play significant works with depth and great artistry. It is most welcome after the awful Soul Music which seems to consist of largely insipid work that is shallow at best.

      @marcia The performance can either be rehearsed or improvised. Improvisation is a musical idea created without premeditation, while rehearsal is vigorous repetition of an idea until it has achieved cohesion. Musicians will sometimes add improvisation to a well-rehearsed idea to create a unique performance.

      @marcia I too love Baroque music Marcia but many of us love the SOUL MUSIC as well. For many people, including several I know in hospice, it is the most inspiring and nourishing three hours of music. If you find it "insipid" then listen elsewhere but don't damage the enterprise for those who find it a blessing.
