Programme 45: about Music- The Art of Listening: Quiz: Is it Baroque or Classical?

--:--
In this programme we are going to play a little quiz game. I have lined up nine items in the programme today; all are from the 17th and 18th Centuries, and I would like you to use all the fingerprints we have covered in past episodes to identify if the music is of the Baroque period or of the Classical Period.
For each I will give you two hints, then we listen, and then I will briefly discuss the pointers afterwards. Let’s see how well you have managed to sort out the musical fingerprints in your mind!
There is a really nice variety today, so I’m hoping you will join me!
