MCC and the BBC

Many of the artists who perform at Malvern Concert Club can also be heard in radio broadcasts, both as performers and presenters. Following the broadcast by BBC Radio 3 of our Elgar Chamber Music Centenary concert in May by the Brodsky Quartet and Martin Roscoe, the latest in a line dating back to 1959, the BBC connections continue into this season. The October 2019 concert artists, The Pavel Haas Quartet, and Pavel Kolesnikov who performs for us on 28 November are former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists. Both Tasmin Little, who makes her farewell appearance at the Club on 23 January 2020, and Iestyn Davies, who will be with us on 19 March, have presented their choice of music in recent episodes of Saturday Classics, and some past episodes by our President, Roderick Williams, are still available to download as podcasts (music excerpts are shorter than those broadcast).

We also try to notify the presenters of the Radio 3 Breakfast Programme about our concerts, and would appreciate it if you could let us know when you hear any announcements.
