16 February. A number of pieces are being specially recorded, and will be
receiving not only their first broadcasts in Britain, but their world premieres.
The full schedule will be published on this web-site in advance of the broadcast,
and listerners outside the UK can also hear every note of music via the Radio 3 web-site.
A page has just been added to the BBC's web-site giving details of some
of the rare recordings which will be included in the week of the broadcast:
More details will follow as soon as we have them...
I really enjoyed Charles Hazelwood's introduction and analysis of the Overture
to Romeo and Juliet this
afternoon and appreciated it for the first time. It was far more meaningful
than any of the university lectures on form and analysis I ever had.
I always thought it too sugary sweet, preferring the Prokofiev. but the
speaker today made it all come to life.
Thank you so much.
I'm pleased to announce that we now have the full schedule on our web-site.
