On now

Four hours of music with news and weather on the hour to keep you informed about what’s going on in the world.

Coming up

  • In Appointment Thomas Hampson takes a broad, humanities-based approach to the role of song in society

  • David Long talks about his work for film, television, with The Muttonbirds and The Labcoats and as Lilburn composer-in-residence in Appointment.

  • Mussorgsky’s tribute to a friend, was orchestrated unforgettably by Maurice Ravel, giving it a sophisticated, glamorous panache. Hear it in Music Alive

  • The family trio of Georg, Florian and Christoph Eggner return with violist Amihai Grosz, for some of our favourite piano trios and quartets for the Saturday Concert

  • In Music Alive we have Vaughan Williams’s velvety The Lark Ascending performed by The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra
