On WCRB's CD of the Week, local ensemble Handel and Haydn Society conjures both the stormy and more buoyant sides of one of their namesake composers.

On the program:

Missa Brevis in A, BWV 234 - Cantus Cölln, Konrad Junghänel

Partita No. 3 in E, BWV 1006, for Solo Violin - Aisslinn Nosky, violin

The Eybler Quartet: Johann Baptist Vanhal – Six Quartets, Op. 6
The Galler Players of Niagara

In the late eighteenth century music scene in Vienna, names like Haydn and Mozart were as much household names as they are now. But there are also names among these Viennese composers that have unfairly fallen by the wayside. One such composer is the Czech-born Johann Baptist Vanhal.
