The Classical Hour

If, like us, you love classical music then this the programme is for you.
On Monday 3-4pm we play a wide selection of music, from Beethoven to Wagner. We include modern composers like Karl Jenkins and Einaudi and also promote women composers.

We like to feature particular talents, including Lang Lang, Benjamin Grosvenor, Nigel Kennedy and Nicola Benedetti, together with new young musicians such as Isata and Sheku Kanneh Mason. So, if you want a relaxing hour to enjoy some of the most beautiful music in the world then this is the programme for you.

Presented by Di Ives, Alan Keeling
