Classics for Kids continues its series on Georg Philipp Telemann with a look at Baroque music. The term "Baroque" comes from a Portuguese word that describes a misshapen pearl. "It has to do with a lot of gaudy stuff that worked its way into the music," says Suzanne Bona of Sunday Baroque, who joins host Naomi Lewin on this episode. In addition to works by Telemann, we'll hear addition pieces from this period composed by Bach, Vivaldi and Handel.
Telemann: Gigue from Suite in D
Bach: Jauchzet Gott
Handel: Royal Fireworks
Telemann: Suite in E "Rejoissance"
Bach: Concerto for Four Harpsichords
Bach: Prelude and Fugue in D for Organ
Vivaldi: Concerto No. 12
