This week’s programme has four movements of the second Branedburg concerto by Bach, more from the excellent contemporary composer – Jim Perkins, some piano music by Gottschalk and Rachmaninov, three Schubert songs and a serenade by Elgar. Tune in if you can.
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.
