Classical music isn't just on the radio and in concert halls - you can find it anywhere.

The Boston Symphony Orchestra has announced its schedule for next season, and it tells us a lot about where the orchestra is headed.

Take a moment to salute the great Bach today. No, not THAT great Bach!  We’re celebrating Carl Philipp Emanuel, born on March 8, 1714, the 2nd surviving son of Johann Sebastian.  Mozart is quoted as saying “Bach is the father.  We are the Children!”  And he meant C.P.E., whose reputation overshadowed his dad’s.

If you're a fan of early music, as I am, then you know the name of Berlin-born conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt. The cellist and early music pioneer died March 5th at age 86. His death dims another light on the 20th century which saw the rebirth of early music because of the scholarship and dedication of such early enthusiasts. He, and his violinist wife Alice, founded the period instrument ensemble Concentus Musicus Wien in 1953. He was on the podium, or conducting from the cello, right up until his retirement from performing this past December.
