Karl Amadeus Hartmann on demand

Much interest in the recent Britten Sinfonia concerts directed by Alina Ibragimova which I wrote about here and here. The programme included the first performance of a Tansy Davies Bach orchestration, Karl Amadeus Hartmann's Concerto Funèbre, and Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht. Hartmann is seen in my header photo (credit Wikipedia).

Listen to the concert on demand on BBC Radio 3 until Nov 9 via this link, including a short interview with Alina Ibragimova.

And some thoughts on recording Schoenberg here.

There is also a SinfoniaCast, Britten Sinfonia's new series of podcasts, featuring an interview with Alina Ibragimova with an intro from Fiona Talkington (from Radio BBC 3's Late Junction). We are releasing monthly podcasts relating to our concert series, the next to come out on 12 November. http://www.brittensinfonia.co.uk/listen/podcasts.html
