Early music on TTN
For the first nearly 2 hours
Jonathan Swain presents Czech performances of concerti from 18th Century Prague. Includes Jiránek, Rosetti and Pokorný
Then from 4.30, another half an hour, ending with delightful 16th-century dance music on the chamber organ.
And this to look forward to on Wednesday 8th
Il Giardino Armonico
Keeping an eye to the TtN schedules means discovering quite a lot of music well off the throdden paths (though war horses can be found very regularly as well, of course), and my impression is, that especially the "older" music and "early" music is served better in that respect (i.e. unknown works, even for "Liebhaber and Connaisseurs") than 19th-21st C composed works.
I've often thought so. But I also have the impression that they are now splitting up early music concerts by inserting pieces from other periods between the items, which they used not to do.

Just on the edge of early music but another most enjoyable concert on the 5th
Jonathan Swain presents a concert of trios by Haydn
Trios for harpsichord and strings:
All these concerts are, if I understand correctly, recorded by R3 equivalent of EU countries. I wish R3 would go out and record more early music concerts of other than mainstream names both composers and performers. Or maybe these are major names in their own countries?
EMS does have quite a lot of ‘BBC recording’. I wonder what happen to these recordings? Can they not be played on TTN?
Early Music on TTN 2
An enjoyable early music recital on TTN on Wednesday 22
Cantatas for soprano and recorder.
Concerto Copenhagen perform concertos by Vivaldi, Fasch and Pisendel. Presented by Jonathan Swain.
The concert is a repeat (not the rest of the programme) but enjoyable all the same.
