Studio Laren sings about the end of the world. And also the end of humanity (yes, in that order). Of course Orlando di Lasso asks God for Help. Ulisse gets help from godess Minerva in preparing his revenge while his wife Penelope bravely resists her suitors who try to convince her first with singing and dancing and then with richess. Gaetano Valeri wrote a nice march, but Mendelssohn wisely asks God for peace. Thomas de Hartmann ends it lightly.
And then we have quite a piece by Xenakis, Steve Reich tells us that it is going to rain and we open a series about Shostakovich's last symphony.
Classical music at RTV Arnhem, next Sunday at 9 pm MET (UTC+2)
