Music of the 20s and 30s

Today on our Main Stream, enjoy a pro­gramme of music from the 1920s and 30s, com­posed of orig­i­nal record­ings and more recent re-record­ings. The cri­te­ri­on is sim­ply that the piece was writ­ten dur­ing the peri­od, so you’ll in fact hear per­for­mances vir­tu­al­ly from then until now.
