Some happy trumpet-blowing for a BBC Radio 3 broadcast tonight at 9:25 - the whole of my The Rosegarden of Light (all 25 minutes of it) is getting an airing. Most of you know all about this work, but if not, it’s worth listening to just for the playing of the young girls of Ensemble Zohra from the Afghanistan National Institute of Music - their little pieces were recorded a couple of years ago during some of the worst violence in Kabul and is a testament to the incredible power of music to transcend such dreadful things.
Blowing over! See you all soon,
