Bach to Blake, Tchaikovsky to The Real Thing!

Monday Classics 6th April 2009

All kinds of classics on the show tonight, from the sixteenth century right up to Lemar's current single.
As well as the music, we chatted about the Classical Brit Awards 2009, in May, and looked back at the
2008 event, and heard artists from these events.

I previewed the Phoenix FM events at the Brentwood Theatre later on in the year; there is a classical piano
concert on 20th September to be given by Benjamin Grosvenor, and we listenend to music by Chopin, similar
to that Benjamin will perform at his concert. More details:

The Film Classic was from the 2000 film 'Gladiator' - music composed by Hans Zimmer

And the LP this week was from J S Bach's St Matthew Passion - telling the story of the events leading up
to the Crucifixion on Good Friday.

And in the less-classical classic news, remember to get yourself down to the Palace Theatre this Wednesday
8th April if The Real Thing is your thing, and Lemar plays the Cliffs Pavillion, Southend on Saturday 11th.

And here is your playlist:


'Weight of the World' - Lemar

'Mock Morris' - Percy Grainger

'Allegro' - Concerto Grosso in F - Corelli


Opening section from 'St Matthew Passion' - J S Bach

'Annie's Song' - sung by Faryl Smith

'Up where we belong' - Blake


'Romance No.1' - John Brunning

'Prelude' from the Holberg Suite - Edward Grieg

'Can't get by without you' - The Real Thing

'Nocturne no 2 in Eflat' - Chopin


'Now that we are free' from Gladiator (2000) - Hans Zimmer

'Fantasia on Greensleeves' - Ralph Vaughan Williams

Then it was 8pm, the News, and Jules took over the airwaves.
see you next week for your Bank Holiday Monday Classics.  Take care, Ed
