Essential Classics: Sound Of Cinema

Friday 20 September



It’s the final day of Sarah Walker’s guest, the stage and screen actor Tim Piggott-Smith. Tim got his big break with the leading role of Ronald Merrick in the 1984 television serial The Jewel In The Crown.

At 11am as part of the BBC’s Sound Of Cinema season, Neil Brand (dramatist, composer and silent film accompanist) introduces his personal choice of music that made the movies. Neil's choices will be available to download as a podcast from the Radio 3 website.

There’s also a selection of music, including the Essential CD of the Week: French Wind Band Classics - RNCM Wind Orchestra, Timothy Reynish, CHANDOS; and the daily brainteaser.

Plus this week’s Artist of the Week is Dame Janet Baker, the English mezzo-soprano who celebrates her 80th birthday this year.
