Of Interest On R3 Perhaps

A flying visit to let board members know that the BBC Singers' Performance on 3 concert from St Paul's Knightsbridge this Friday May 29th, 7pm, of music by Bach and Mendelssohn, will include the Mendelssohn 6th Sonata and (very) early Fantasia and Fugue in g - and that it's worth keeping an eye on Saturday morning CD review in the next couple of weeks as something of interest may be featured therein. I confess to a hand in both enterprises, but at least it's organ music on Radio 3. Best wishes

As if Stevie's super performance of Mendelssohn 6 wasn't enough last night, I came across this on radio 3 this morning. I had to double check the radio wasn't malfunctioning as I thought it unthinkable the BBC would allow more organ music on its airwaves within 24 hours of a live broadcast:

Simon Lole doing an excellent job introducing Bach's Clavierubung III on the unsuspecting Radio 3 audience.

I think Simon does an excellent job pitching this successfully to newcomers to Clavierubung III and those that know it well alike. Good to hear Piet Kee's recording of the E flat Prelude and Fugue at the Martinikerk, Gronigen - one of the best currently available IMNSHO.

 

And really good to see the Beeb giving this much air time to the organ!!

Colin - very kind remarks and much appreciated. Next Saturday's CD review, by the way, will also feature a hefty chunk of organ music.

Best to all
