Live in the studio across the week she'll also feature exclusive Schubert Remixed sessions, with contemporary artists from across the genres reinterpreting some of Schubert's great songs live in the studio.
Including at 11.30pm The Schubert Essay: During the 19th century public performance became polite and professional. Audiences listened attentively in an environment free of gimmicks, and performance criticism blossomed. Night Waves' Matthew Sweet examines the legacy that controlling an audience would create, and how this new wave of respectability enabled writing, composing and performance to prosper.
