This week’s programme starts with piano music from Alexander Scriabin followed by some fifteenth century polyphony. The piece España next – by a frenchman – Emmanuel Chabrier who composed it after holidaying in Spain. Then the Emerson Quartet play Schumann, and the Royal Concertgebouw follow up with part of a Strauss Oboe concerto that he composed in his eighties after WWll. A song next – the aria Depuis de Jour from the opera Louise by Charpentier. We end with some more woodwind – part of Weber’s Clarinet Concerto No. 2.
Channel 292 can be pulled live off the internet if the reception is poor in your location. Easy to find their site with a google search. A very good site for online SDR receivers all over the world is: http://kiwisdr.com/public/ Click the ‘Map’ button in the top left of the screen.
