Classic Album Sundays Vince Guaraldi ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ with Neil Cowley on Classic Album Sundays Worldwide

Vince Guaraldi’s music brought the Peanuts to life. He scored 17 animated Peanuts television specials and the first was this Christmas classic, the evocative ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’. Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy and her special guest Guaraldi fan and pianist Neil Cowley tell Vince Guaraldi’s story and his relationship with Charles Schulz’s gang of children who see life through the world-weary eyes of adults in this edition of Classic Album Sundays Worldwide. And of course, there is amazing music to get you in the holiday spirit.

Heinrich Schütz

Donald Macleod journeys through Christmas week in the company of Heinrich Schütz.

Donald begins by dipping a toe into the fertile archival territory of Schütz’s own writings, a fascinating window onto the life of the composer. Then we’re to the Striezelmarkt for a pastry and a glass of Glühwein, with a look at Christmas in 17th-century Dresden. Onwards to Venice, where Schütz studies with Gabrieli and hobnobs with Monteverdi. Next, things turn serious, as Schütz is swept up in the convulsions of the 30 Years’ War and its impact is felt on musical life. Finally, Donald looks at the great music of Schütz’s final years, his attempts to retire – and eventually bids farewell with his Schwanengesang.
