St. Paul, Minn. — On Classical Minnesota Public Radio, we play music from the medieval to the modern. Our Learning to Listen series aims to help you understand what you are hearing, and when it might have been written.

This episode focuses on two of the four most common Baroque dances used in German dance suites — the Sarabande and Allemande.
