A Better Day at the Office

My first six hours listening to Classical Archives Radio were both delightful and educational. My office was filled with streaming music. I discovered works that I had never heard before by Mozart, Schubert, Granados, Byrd and others. And during my musical journey that day, I discovered a performance of the Brahms vier ernste Gesänge (“Four Serious Songs”) by baritone Matthias Goerne that I expect to listen to repeatedly, as well as a superb recording of anthems and motets by William Byrd, performed by an ensemble called I Fagiolini.

Classical Archives Radio is increasing my listening pleasure and my musical horizons too.

I believe it will do the same for you. Why not join me and make Classical Archives Radio part of your daily listening routine?
