Listening to this week's show will make you feel like you've just stepped into a Vermeer painting...

You'll hear Bach's Harpsichord Concertos and music from an Ames, Iowa, based duo, Basically Baroque. The Chamber Music Society of Fairfield arranged for the duo to perform this Sunday, May 4th at ICON Gallery in Fairfield at 2 p.m. The duo plays harpsichord, baroque oboe and bassoon.

At 10:30 a.m. I'll talk with Kevin Schilling, Associate Professor of Music at Iowa State, one of the members of Basically Baroque.

"I use [folk melodies] as a point of departure for my inspiration, and I take a lot of freedom. I’m searching for a new idiom that doesn’t belong to preconceived categories."
