LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. Europe and North America are both on Daylight Time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone, eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. In UK, Ireland and Portugal add one (1) hour to GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add one (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Standard Time (Australia is 10 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 12 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

SPECIAL PROGRAM: Roderick Williams: Voices Unwrapped at Kings Place
Radio 3 in Concert

As part of Kings Place's Voices Unwrapped, a year-long celebration of the power and the joy of singing, one of Britain's best-loved and most versatile singers, baritone Roderick Williams is joined by Aurora Orchestra for a musical journey which travels from darkness to light, joy to sorrow, and regret to redemption.

Roderick Williams's beautifully conceived programme builds gradually from a single solo voice up to the small ensemble used by Iain Farrington in his virtuosic chamber arrangement of Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer. Along the way, Roderick Williams sings his own transcriptions of three favourite Purcell songs and Judith Weir's haunting meditation on night-time, Good Morning, Midnight.

Recorded in February and introduced by Ian Skelly.

Brian Elias: Meet me in the Green Glen
Vaughan Williams: 'The Woodcutter’s Song' from The Pilgrim’s Progress
Berio: Duets for Two Violin: No. 24 ‘Aldo’; No. 27 ‘Alfredo’; No. 29 ‘Alfred’
Purcell (arr. R. Williams): If Music be the food of love; Ah! How sweet it is to love; Music for a while
Judith Weir: Good Morning, Midnight
Schoenberg: Verklärte Nacht, Op. 4
Mahler (arr. Farrington): Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen
