On This Island: Music of English Composers

Today we present a pro­gramme of music by Eng­lish com­posers old and new, fea­tur­ing var­i­ous pieces by Ben­jamin Brit­ten whose cen­te­nary falls this year (and one of whose song cycles forms the title of today’s pro­gramme).

In addi­tion we are fea­tur­ing what is prob­a­bly at least one of the first broad­casts of Christo­pher Gun­ning’s lat­est works, the Con­cer­tos for Gui­tar, Clar­inet and Flute, from the album released on the Dis­cov­ery label. You’ll also hear Richard Har­vey’s delight­ful Con­cer­to Incan­tan­do for recorder, played by Micha­la Petri.

The ZBS Radio Hour

Then at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic time (19:00 and 03:00 GMT), join us for the lat­est in our cur­rent sequence of ZBS adven­tures  The Jack Flan­ders adven­ture Mid­night At Casa Luna con­tin­ues and it’s the final week of our Steam­punk satire, Lady Win­der­mere’s Brass Fantab­u­lous.
