Early Music Up Late – Music from the popular ABC Classic FM program, presented by Simon Healy
Simon Healy writes:
Every Monday to Thursday night it’s my pleasure to present a personal choice of music 'Up Late' on ABC Classic FM.
We live in an extraordinarily privileged age in which the treasures of the past can be readily sampled at any time and place that suits us. Once the exclusive province of kings, princes and the wealthy, classical music is now available to a larger, and better informed, audience than at any time in its history. In the case of Early Music, recordings allow us to go into the types of spaces and acoustics for which it was composed, using instruments of the period, or faithful copies.
I hope this collection brings you as much pleasure as I had in choosing it.
