    Weekly radio show about Film & Stage music


    Found this gem of a web site, and thought a few of you might be interested. The BBC have a radio station dedicated to classical music. There is a weekly radio show dedicated to Stage and Film music ... and there is web site where you can hear replays of interviews and reviews. These are really intelligent and interesting interviews.

    Even better, the BBC allows you to listen to the entire edition of its latest programme from the web site. So for those of you who don\'t live in the UK ... don\'t worry.

    Here is a list of THIS MONTH\'S interviews, which you can still hear on-line.

    Hope you like it !!



    Elmer Bernstein talks about The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape and The Man with the Golden Arm.

    Harry Gregson-Williams talks to Tommy Pearson at his L.A. studio and at the orchestral recording sessions for his soundtrack to the film Spy Game at Abbey Road studios, London.

    James Horner talks about the satisfaction of finally winning his first Oscar for Titanic... ... and explains the evolution of the film\'s hit song \'My heart will go on\'

    Lalo Schifrin talks at the piano in his LA studio about his music for Bullitt, Dirty Harry, and Mission Impossible.

    Tommy speaks to jazz trumpeter and film composer Mark Isham about his work and what it takes to make it as a composer in Hollywood.

    Tommy talks to David Raksin ...

    This is cool too.
    From the same BBC Radio 3 web site, it a radio programme that analyses pieces of classical music, and deconstructs them to explain the orchestration ... might be interesting to a few us.

    There is also a vast catalogue of previous programmes to listen to by RealPlayer.

    Hope some of you might find it interesting.


    \"Broadcast: Sundays, 5.00-5.45pm

    Listen to the latest programme

    Discovering Music finds out what makes great music great. Each week, our presenters explore the depths of a major classical work, to explain what makes it a masterpiece.
    The series is unique because of the way it uses specially-recorded examples to take the music apart. Longer examples put brief analyses into context, so that each programme bridges the gap between an analysis and a concert performance of a piece of music. Discovering Music always ties into a complete performance of the piece happening that week on Radio 3. Listeners then have the chance to re-experience the music with different tools for listening and new insights.\"
