Encore – Classical Music on Shortwave – Broadcast on Sunday afternoon in Europe (repeated Friday evening) and USA
Encore – Classical Music this weekend is being broadcast as usual by Channel 292 (Europe) on 6070 kHz at 15:00 UTC Sunday 13th October.
And by WBCQ on 7490 kHz at 00:00 – 01:00 UTC Monday 14th October
There is a repeat on 6070 kHz on Friday 18th October at 19:00 UTC.
This week’s programme starts with some Schumann piano played by Vladimir Horowitz in a live recording from 1965. Next some Rameau harpsichord music and a motet sung by the Silo de Pro choir. Something left of field after that from 1956 – early John Cage ‘Radio Music’ and three Britten divertimenti composed when he was in his early twenties. To end the hour – a Schubert Lieder and some of Mendelssohn’s violin concerto.
Both Channel 292 and WBCQ host live streams if the reception is poor in your location. Easy to find their sites with a google search.
