15 SATURDAY
12:00 A.M. Music Through the Night
5:00 Howard’s Day Off with Howard Dicus. All-Haydn Show. The father of the symphony, and of the quartet, and of the sonata, at least as we know them today. Not for nothing do they call him PAPA Haydn, and I’ll sample 22 separate pieces.
10:00 From the Top From Corbett Auditorium in Cincinnati, Ohio, this week’s program features one of the strongest pre-collegiate music programs in the country: The Cincinnati Starling Project. Host Christopher O’Riley joins Starling’s flagship orchestra to play Mozart, we’ll hear a 12-year-old violinist and one of the program’s most talented young soloists perform the music of Edward Elgar, and three From the Top alumni return to share their stories of mega success on YouTube and to perform a wonderfully schmaltzy comedic violin trio.
11:00 Classical Guitar Alive! with Anthony Morris. A 2012 interview with Julia Crowe, author of the best-selling book “My First Guitar: Tales of True Love and Lost Chords from 70 Legendary Musicians.”

The story of the sorceress Armida, from Torquato Tasso’s epic poem Jerusalem Liberated, has been set by several great composers – including Dvorak, Handel and Haydn – as well as any number of lesser lights. But of all those versions, Rossini’s lively opera just may be the best.

5:00 Studio 360
with Kurt Andersen.  Jon Stewart makes his directorial debut with the movie Rosewater. It’s no comedy – the movie is based on the experience of a journalist who appeared on The Daily Show, and then was arrested and tortured for it in Iran. Also, the man behind the band Bahamas may hail from the great white north, but he plays sunny folk-rock. And a look back to how Buck Owens stormed Carnegie Hall with the boot-stomping Bakersfield sound.
6:00 A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor.  We're live from the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minnesota, with special guests, spirited bluegrass quintet Steep Canyon Rangers, Rochester's own Choral Arts Ensemble, and pianist Jane Belau.

4:00 Harmonia with Angela Mariani. Catchy Tunes: Gloria Tibi Trinitas. We’re solving an antiphon mystery. It seems that every composer worth his salt in England from the mid-16th to the end of the 17th century composed at least one, and sometimes many pieces titled “In nomine.” We’ll find out why, as well as explore the sackbut as part of our “Listener’s Guide to the Renaissance Consort.”
5:00 Weekend Radio with Robert Conrad. We haven’t had a “Ghost Riders in the Sky” orgy for quite awhile. Here are versions by The Corries, Tom Paxton, Spike Jones, and the Cincinnati Pops with Sherrill Milnes.

8:00 New Sounds  Meetings of Two Tectonic Plates  Listen to some of the remarkable and unexpected collaboration between concert violinist and improviser Hilary Hahn & the German composer and keyboard player, Hauschka.  They perform for us works for violin and prepared piano, based on their record, "Silfra," which was named for the crack in Iceland between the American and Eurasian continents where the continental plates meet and drift apart about 2cm per year.  Interestingly, these live performances are different from the ones on "Silfra," because all of the pieces are improvised.
9:00 The Early Muse
with Ian Capps. Corelli’s Sonatas Worldwide. Arcangelo Corelli was the most brilliant violinist of his time. The Early Muse shows how the stay-at-home Roman influenced the global development of the sonata through just a few carefully crafted publications and a style carried as far as Scotland, America, even China, by his Italian colleagues and followers.

Among the featured performers, you’ll meet a 13-year-old violinist who’s studying with a New World Symphony fellow, a 16-year-old violist who is an outspoken champion of the viola, and a 17-year-old soprano who is taught by her Grammy Award-winning mom.

World of Opera  MOZART  Idomeneo  Vienna State Opera Orchestra and Chorus, Christoph Eschenbach, conductor. Michael Schade (Idomeneo); Chen Reiss (Ilia); Margarita Gritskova (Idamante); Maria Bengtson (Elettra); Pavel Kolgatin (Arbace); Carlos Osuna (High Priest of Neptune).  Idomeneo is a masterpiece that’s only beginning to gain its rightful place in Mozart’s canon.  The opera does have an outlandish plot -- complete with conniving gods and a carniverous sea monster -- but it’s also blessed with some of Mozart’s most beautiful music and a troupe of opera’s most touchingly human characters.
