Just one last reminder that tonight is the night for the broadcast of my recent concert with the Contemporary Music Ensemble of Wales on this week’s edition of Hear and Now on BBC Radio 3.
The concert is hosted by writer, critic and broadcaster Ivan Hewett and can be heard this Saturday, April 19th at 10:30 PM GMT on BBC Radio 3, or online at-
If you are too busy to listen today, you can listen to the program anytime via the Radio 3 on-demand service for one week after the broadcast here-
(The on-demand service usually becomes available several hours after the show)
The program includes works by Iannis Xenakis, Paul Mefano, Earle Brown and Gordon Downie. Complete broadcast information can be found here-
Program notes for the concert are here.
It was a very challenging and rewarding program, with amazing contributions from piano soloist Ian Pace and the musicians of CMEW. As part of the broadcast, Ivan Hewett will be interviewing both CMEW Artistic Director Gordon Downie and Paul Mefano, who flew over from France for the concert. The BBC website is also featuring my lengthy interview with Gordon Downie. Be sure to read it if you haven’t already.
Let me know how it sounds- I’m in rehearsals all day with the OES Preparatory Orchestra so won’t get to hear it until later this week.
