This year’s Sunday Baroque Holiday Gift List has a broad variety of recommendations, including a few surprises. There is something for just about every taste — familiar favorites, less well known music, period instruments, modern instruments, and more. And of course, all the performances are top notch. One big surprise is THE PERFECT SOUTHERN ART, which features classical banjo player John Bullard. The eclectic CD features several baroque selections — familiar music by familiar composers — as well as music by Robert Schumann and Edvard Grieg. It shows a side of the instrument most people have never heard. I’m looking forward to interviewing John Bullard soon for a podcast we will share with you. If you have suggestions for what you would like me to ask him, please submit your ideas by Monday, December 5th by replying to this blog post. Meanwhile, please check out the Sunday Baroque Holiday Gift list on our website or Facebook page, and be sure to listen to Sunday Baroque for the rest of 2016 to hear selections from the gift list CDs!
