Encore – Classical Music on Shortwave – Broadcast on Sunday afternoon in Europe and USA
Encore – Classical Music this weekend is being broadcast as usual by Channel 292 (Europe) on 6070 kHz at 15:00 UTC Sunday 19th May.
And by WBCQ on 7490 kHz at 00:00 – 01:00 UTC Monday 20th May.
There is a repeat on 6070 kHz on Friday 24th May at 19:00 UTC.
This week’s show starts with something familiar from Mozart – the first movement of his Symphony 41 – Jupiter. Then something a bit more unexpected – a contemporary composer Bryce Dessner with his piano concertos for two pianos. Next Alison Balsom with her trumpet treating us to a Concerto Grosso by Corelli. We will also have some Robert Carver – the Scottish equivalent of Byrd or Tallis, and a pieces by Elgar and Handel. I hope the overall effect is both provoking and soothing.
Thank you for spreading the word about Encore – Classical Music on Shortwave.
