Classical Journey Tuesday 7th December

Early twentieth century composer
Ernest John Moeran
Today's programme will start with an emphasis on early and baroque music.  We shall start with the sound of the viola da gamba played by Mike Edwards with Compagnie Giulia.  Mike will be very sadly missed by all who played music with him or enjoyed his concerts.
Between 10 and 11 this morning we shall also hear the music of Arcangelo Corelli, Antonio Vivaldi, G F Handel and J S Bach.
At about 10.50 we shall hear about concerts in and around Exeter and John Scarfe will be telling us about the Wonderful Jubilee Singers who are performing in Clyst Honiton on Friday evening.
At 11 we shall be joined by Dorset pianist Duncan Honeybourne for a discussion of the life and works of Irish composer E J Moeran, who died 60 years ago on 1st December.  We shall also hear Duncan playing many of Moeran's wonderful works for piano.
