Now time for some music by Felix Mendelssohn's good friend, Prince Albert (i.e. Queen Victoria's husband).… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
This Saturday there’s a chance to hear our performance of Sally Beamish’s new work Spinal Chords again, when it is broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s Hear and Now programme. The piece was recorded at it’s Queen Elizabeth Hall performance with narrator Juliet Stevenson reading Melanie Reids’s words and is one of the PRS for Music 20×12 comissions.
Hear and Now goes out tomorrow, 21 April, at 10.45pm on BBC Radio 3. It’s not often that the OAE is featured on a new music programme!
