This week’s Programme – First broadcast this coming Saturday by Channel 292 – begins withRipples and other pieces for piano and violin by Kate Whitley, then some baroque clarinet music and part of Mozart’s Concerto No. 41. After that there will be some Gregorian chant and Beethoven’s Violin Romance No.2 to finish the programme.
After that we’ll hear the DAnce of the Herdmaiden from The Mountain King Suite by Hugo Alfen. Following on – another reverie – this time by Debussy, part of a septet from Beethoven, and an elegy by Henry Purcell – which was played at his own funeral. The programme finishes with ‘First Flight’ by contemporary composer Cecilia McDowall.
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.
