Classical Classroom, Ep. 166: A Fool For Renaissance Music Talks Period Instruments

A special guest talks about and (sort of) plays instruments (allegedly) from the Renaissance period.

It’s the first of April and we are welcoming a special guest (believe us: you will know him when you hear him). He introduces us to a fascinating mix of early music and Renaissance era instruments and performs examples of how each sounds.

    • Walsingham – John Dowling, composer /perf – Edin Karamazov and Sting
