THIS WEEK’S PROGRAMME – (First broadcast this coming FRIDAY by WRMI at 0200 UTC on 5850 and then Channel 292 on SATURDAY at 10:00 UTC on 6070 and 9670 kHz) – starts with Alfred Brenel playing part of the Italian Concerto by Bach.
Then we have some Stravinsky arranged for piano and violin followed by part of Visions of Arctic by Eriks Esenvalds. Something new from the ever original Caroline Shaw next, a lullaby from contemporary Latvian Composer Karlis Lacis, and The Witch of Endor; written and performed by Moondog.
The Programme ends with two subtle piano pieces by Lili Boulanger and a Baroque piece featuring the bassoon from Jan Dismas Zelenka.
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.
