This week’s programme Starts with an overture from Mozart followed by the three Gymnopédies by Satie. Then a little offering from Stockhausen contrasted with a 12th century monophonic monastic song. Next we’ll have a Bach partita, some Ravel, and a sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp by Debussy. The last piece will be part of Mendelssohn’s violin concerto.
The playlist is on the website – along with an email link and comments page.
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.
In the meantime – 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.
