Hello all-
This is Mara Kelland and I'm here to share with you the eclectic nature of classical music on Viva this week.

The show airs as always at 8am Sunday [US Eastern] or replays on Tuesday at 9pm in New Zealand.

This week we have music by Debussy, Britten, Rutter, Purcell and Morley [a very special madrigal for the month of May.] Also as spring is here we have a piece from Copland's Appalachian Spring.

I hope you will join me!

French Composers continue to live on Viva

Hello all-
I hope you can join me on Sunday morning at 8am Eastern time or Tuesday at 8pm local time in New Zealand.
This week on Viva, the classical music show, we continue a journey begun last week with the work of Claude Debussy. French composers continue to live with recordings by Poulenc, Faure and Satie. As well as one big work by Debussy, Sonata for flute, viola and harp.

See you then.
