Monday's first full-length item is a Rossini overture, The Silken Ladder. It should not take too long to discover whether this is for climbing up or sliding down.Reuse content
ALONG with next week's restyling of the rush-hour fare, Radio 3 is bringing back signature tunes for each of its morning presenters. First off, with Piers Burton-Page, will be De Poste from Susato's Danserye, a rousing little number from 1551. Midweek then goes 20th-century: Andrew McGregor, on Tuesdays, has Dumbarton Oaks by Stravinsky, Chris de Souza an excerpt from Kodaly's Hary Janos - not, we are assured, the musical sneeze that tells you to disbelieve everything you hear for the next two hours - and Adrian Edwards the Ravel String Quartet. Then it's back to the Weber Second Clarinet Concerto for Fridays with Andrew Lyle, or at least it will be in a fortnight's time.
