Here is a selection of some of the fine music that you will hear during weekday mornings, on Diversion in Fine Music and on Concert Hall.
Thursday 1 September
Concert Hall with David Brett
Symphony no 2 (1907-09).
Melbourne SO/Andrew Davis
Probably the most entertaining of Ives’s symphonies.
Friday 2 September
Diversions In Fine Music
with Neil McEwan
Suite from The Threepenny Opera (1928; arr Ledger).
David Elton, tpt; Seraphim Trio with percussion.
There’s just something so quirky about the music of Kurt Weill.
Monday 5 September
Concert Hall with Mary Moran
Cello concerto in G (1847).
Ofra Harnoy, vc; Cincinnati SO/Erich Kunzel.
Known for his tongue-in-cheek operas, here is Jacques Offenbach in a somewhat different genre.
