Main: Modern Classical Music

Today’s pro­gramme fea­tures “Mod­ern Clas­si­cal Music” — pieces of music writ­ten between around the mid-20th Cen­tu­ry until the present day. It includes famous names like William Wal­ton and John Rut­ter, and it also includes the Pen­guin Café Orches­tra and the North Sea Radio Orches­tra — and we will be fea­tur­ing the lat­ter’s lat­est album, Gap Species, on today’s pro­gramme. There are pieces from Karl Jenk­ins and Joby Tal­bot, a clar­inet con­cer­to from Richard Har­vey, works by Christo­pher Gun­ning and John Bar­ry that aren’t either com­poser’s work for film and TV, and the Muf­fin Men play­ing arrange­ments of music by Frank Zap­pa. And a great deal more.
