Tůma - WHOma??

05/25/11 8:00AM

Yes, his name is Frantisek Tůma, he was born the same year as Marc-Antoine Charpentier and Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber. Tůma is a little-known master of the late Baroque, a composer whose works were well known to Haydn and Mozart since he lived out the last 30+ years of his life in Austria. We'll hear one of his delightful Sinfonias this morning.
