Shakespeare 400: BBC Radio 3 Broadcast

I'm absolutely thrilled that my Three Tempestuous Tunes were broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, live from Stratford-upon-Avon. They were programmed as part of a special episode of Saturday Classics, curated by Richard Sisson (formerly one half of Kit and the Widow); Richard was joined by baritone Mark Stone for the broadcast premiere of these songs.

I'm delighted that several different singers have now performed these songs; I'm especially looking forward to their second U.S. performance this November.
