Classical Journey Tuesday 8 March

Soprano Mary O'Shea
Unfortunately, Mary O'Shea is not able to sing for us today, but she has only postponed her studio appearance by one week.  Tune in on Tuesday 15th March between 10 and 12am to hear her recital with pianist John Scarfe.
Meanwhile we can enjoy a standard 'Classical Journey', including recordings of Mary herself.  The emphasis this week will be on romantic and modern music, and local composers and performers.  There will be plenty of long restful pieces to enjoy perfromed on flute, guitar, violin, piano and naturally the human voice.
