Elgar Play on BBC Radio 3
Aficionados of Classy Classical will surely know by now that 2007 is the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sir Edward Elgar.
We have already published here Steve Newman’s play on the great man, A Summer Garden.
Now BBC Radio 3 is to broadcast David Pownall’s Elgar drama tomorrow, Sunday June 3, at 9pm BST (8pm GMT). You can hear this play wherever you are, as the BBC now puts its radio programmes on the internet.
Go here to listen : http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio3/
You may need to download a free Radio Player to hear it, but once you have, you’ll be able to listen to all the other Elgar features planned during the summer, and much more besides.
If you miss the actual broadcast, there’s a button to “Listen Again”.
