BBC WORLD SERVICE International Recital March 1996
This year we welcome musicians from three Tcontinents performing pieces from the sixteenth century to the present day. And for the first time in the series, we have a concert of jazz, with music from Julian Joseph, a young British pianist who has brought a new energy and freshness into the jazz world. Another British group, Fretwork, brings us music stretching across four centuries, from William Byrd to Elvis Costello; the Guarneri Trio of Prague promises us classical music in the rich central European tradition; and the French-Canadian Marc-André Hamelin performs a programme which takes us back to the days of the great ‘piano-tamers’. Three Palestinian musicians perform classical music from the Arab world, and we also welcome some of the young rising stars of classical music, led by the Scottish saxophonist Andrew McNeill.
Last year, as every year, listeners from as far afield as China and India, Canada and Brazil, wrote to us about ‘International Recital.’ The letters below remind us of the power of radio in bringing the concert experience to those who have never had the opportunity to attend a concert themselves. Tapes and CDs are a wonderful way of hearing music - but there’s nothing quite like the thrill of live music-making.

I have never attended any organised recital, but I do extremely enjoy BBC International Recital presentation, which I listen to always. (Hassan Modu, Nigeria).

I’m one of your loyal listeners to the BBC, and I like ‘International Recital' very much. I especially love English music. (Zhang Hongxiang, Peoples Republic of China).

Thank you very much for broadcasting International Recital, which allows us to share the excitement of a live concert - wherever we are in the world.
(Snehesh Kapadia, India).
