Radio 3 to host daily live recitals

17th February 2011

Radio 3 is to air live recitals of classical music on a daily basis as part of the BBC's commitment to the country's 'artistic and cultural life', the broadcaster has confirmed.

From May 3rd, the station will broadcast a live orchestral movement, recital or solo performance every evening until the beginning of the Proms on July 15th.

A number of venues across the UK will stage performances, with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Manchester's Halle and London Philharmonic among the groups set to feature.

Radio 3 controller Roger Wright commented: 'Increasing our commitment to live broadcasting to this degree is an unprecedented move. It is exciting to expand our work ... and celebrate on a nightly basis the excitement of UK-wide music-making as it happens.'

Last month, Radio 3 staged a number of live performances solely featuring the music of Mozart as part of its season dedicated to the Austrian composer, with the BBC's TV stations also airing programmes devoted to him.
