The Secrets of the Off-stage Musician

Sunday 7 August 2005 20:20-20:40 (Radio 3)

Some performers at the Proms find themselves playing in the corridors, gallery or stairways of the Albert Hall. David Lasserson investigates the role of off-stage musicians, who may wait for hours, far away from the conductor and his beat, and invisible to the audience.

Duration:

20 minutes
