Morning Mailbag

One of our chief joys is hearing from WXXI's classical music listeners.  Enjoy a sample of a few e-mails from recent weeks.

Brenda:

I've been listening to your show on the way in to work lately and really enjoying the selection. Michael Pratorius was new to me, and a direct hit.

A question: you played a chaconne by Marin Marais last week (I believe by the Concert of Nations). I'd like to track the recording down, but he wrote a number of chaconnes. Can you shed any light?
