Live Friday On Classical 101: Love Songs With Asteria Duo

As the saying goes, all's fair in love and war. Nowhere was that expression more relevant than during the Renaissance, a period known as much for its profusion of courtly love lyrics as for its seemingly endless string of wars. Join me on Classical 101 Friday, Sept. 30, at 1 p.m., for a special live, in-studio performance and interview with the award-winning Asteria Renaissance voice and lute duo. Asteria's Sylvia Rhyne (soprano) and Eric Redlinger (lute) will perform music from the court of Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, a character who in his day heard his share of love songs and saw more than his share of war. We'll also chat about Duke Charles' penchant for good music and what it's like to be a modern-day troubadour. Listen Friday, Sept. 30, at 1 p.m., for Asteria: Live On Classical 101.
