This week’s programme has a varied mix of great classical music to enjoy. A clarinet Trio by Brahms, some of a string quartet by Beethoven – his last one – the 13th, and some singing from 12th century France. We’ve more clarinet from Mozart – to compare and contrast with the Brahms, and then two lieder from Schubert’s Winterreise – performed by Fischer-Dieskau and Alfred Brendel. The contemporary composer Meredith Monk does something extraordinary with a few instruments and the human voice before we finish with La Péri by Paul Dukas.
Both Channel 292 and WBCQ as well as WWCR can be pulled live off the internet if the reception is poor in your location. Easy to find their sites with a google search.
Thank you for spreading the word about Encore – Classical Music on Shortwave. And thank you to everyone for letting us know how well the signal is received where you live.
