8:00 New SoundsBeyond the Pale (of Settlement)  Music on this edition comes from the area of Eastern Europe from Lithuania in the north to Ukraine in the south, including Poland and Belarus, from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea, where the Russian Empire settled much of its Jewish population in the 19th century, or the Pale of Settlement. Listen to traditional music by Michael Alpert, who comes from an Ashkenazic family, and Julian Kytasty, whose parents are from Ukraine, from their recent release, “Night Songs from a Neighboring Village.”
9:00 The Early Muse with Ian Capps. The Classic Italian Madrigals. The Italian madrigal reached the height of its popularity in the late 16th century, just as European trends were moving away from the perfect symmetry of renaissance polyphony to the emotional expressionism of the Baroque. The themes were overwhelmingly about love and, regardless of individual texts, belong to Spring and summer.
