The Early Muse

There is a wonderful richness and variety in Western music before the year 1700. Host Ian Capps explores everything from Medieval chant and troubadour songs to the rich polyphony of Renaissance sacred and secular music, and into the Baroque 'revolution' of the 17th century with its invention of the opera, oratorio, ballet and orchestral music as we know it today.

Morning Café/Morning Concert

HPR Music Director Gene Schiller's signature program begins each weekday morning with Morning Café, a refreshing blend of music, usually built around a special theme. The program also includes interesting features and often live interviews with visiting guest artists. After the 10am NPR news break, Morning Concert kicks in with longer classical works.

Singing and Other Sins

This show debuted in 1988 with the name "Great Songs." At that time, song meant something that was sung. Now, it can mean almost anything: an opera track, speaking or a movement from a symphony. Something that can be downloaded. In 2011 the show was renamed Singing & Other Sins, perhaps more fitting for a program featuring art song, which is indeed singing.
