Was so happy to have met you at last night’s BLUE ASH/ MONTGOMERY Concert. I thought you did a spectacular job hosting what turned out to be another great event. I am looking forward to listening to your Sunday morning show. I hope to be receiving a copy of the selfy you took of us with your cell phone as I would love to display it in my music room. Thank you in advance.

I was very interested to hear what Ms. Bona had to say this morning about the piece usually known as Albinoni’s Adagio. I’d heard was that it was either a pastiche of fragments by Albinoni or a complete 20th century forgery, but according to Ms. Bona, the piece is now attributed to an even earlier Baroque composer, Bigio Marini. I’d like to know more about this, if possible. Whoever composed that piece, and whenever they composed it, it is a beautiful work, and I never did buy the idea that it was a modern work in Baroque style.

Hi Susan, that was new info to us as well. We couldn’t find info on the connection to Biagio Marini but Susan provided this link to go along with Sunday’s show: https://www.classicfm.com/composers/albinoni/music/tomaso-albinoni-adagio-g-minor/

Hi, I was looking for a playlist for Sunday 4/23/23, and couldn’t find it. Wanted to know the name of a piece at around 8:15 AM? A response would be helpful. Thanks-
