Intimate Voices will be moving to Sunday mornings at 9am, bringing the magic of a small group of musicians playing together, the most personal and welcoming of artistic expression.
The Piano Sonata moves into the early afternoon at 2pm, continuing the wealth of this genre. A window into one of the cornerstones of classical music. Always an adventure; always virtuosic.
New: Explorations will be heard at 6pm. This will bring you a range of superbly focused classical programs, including two monthly series: The Mannheim Rocket, and the works of individual composers, and a discourse on the Strauss dynasty. Explore on Sundays.
New: Jazz Interaction will complete the week’s 7pm jazz. It will focus on new jazz releases, progressing to some innovative programming with a live social media presence.
Sunday Night Concert will move back to early evening at 8pm, with the best in orchestral music. Varied programs featuring the world’s best music, for a relaxing end to the weekend.
New Horizons will also move back 30 minutes to 9:30pm, continuing its focus on classical music of the last 40 years: modern; challenging; and intriguing.
Jazz After Hours – Portraits will replace the two-hour Jazz After Hours, starting instead at 11pm. Portraits will continue the Sunday theme of focusing on specific musicians, instruments or years
