Baroque& Before 20-03

On the morning of January 1, just one day after he turned 94 years old, violinist Jaap Schröder died at his home in Amsterdam. On this week’s edition of Baroque&Before, we remember one of the first pioneers to present performances of baroque, and later, classical works, on period instruments.

Recordings for this week’s program come from WFMT’s Richard and Mary L Gray Library.
