Starting today, 3pm-5pm
"A personal view of classical music from a range of presenters launches with Gareth Malone, star of BBC 2's BAFTA Award Winning 'The Choir'. In the first of four programmes, Gareth explores the many aspects of a subject close to his heart - 'musical youth'. Featuring two hours of great music including Mozart, Schubert, Verdi, Chopin and Elgar."
No playlist yet. Gareth Malone will be presenting the first four programmes in this new series. Other (musical) celebrities to follow.
The main issue for many of us will be, not whether it is 'high-quality' and 'distinctive' but what knowledge level it assumes. It may be yet another two hours aimed at the 'potential' new audience (I wonder where else it's being trailed?); it may be a good 'work-out' with some interesting music and comment.
