CHORAL CONCERT, with host Peter Togni Sunday, August 5, 2012 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2

German Romantics

This week on Choral Concert Peter Togni will lead us into the deep waters of the 19th century German romantics, where we will wallow in the creative tension between passion and intellect. This is the period of the great German masters, where the ideal was to create a new synthesis of art, philosophy and science.

You will hear Brahms, Schubert, Reinberger, and Mendelssohn performed by some of the best choirs from across Canada and around the world – including the Vancouver Cantata Singers, the West Coast Mennonite Chamber Choir, the Corydon Singers and the Monteverdi Choir.

Don’t forget that CBCMUSIC.CA has lots to offer for classical music lovers, there are 10 classical streams, available 24 / 7. You can also check out the Choral Concert blog plus extensive videos and concerts in all genres.
