Radio 3: Composer of the week: Finland

Activity: OtherMedia (Radio)


As the consultant for these five programmes, I helped compile the running order, select the musical content and provide a cultural and historical context; the interview (recorded on October 10th) provides the linking material between the musical extracts being played. These 10 broadcasts have a projected audience reach of some 2 million listeners. The recorded interviews are available indefinitely via podcast. The five programmes are based around the following themes: (i) Founding Fathers (and later echoes); (ii) Towards Independence; (iii) The Kalevala; (iv) Opening Windows to Europe; (v) Finland and the Natural World.
