Into the Forest: Tenebrae, AyseDeniz Gokcin
Katie Derham goes Into the Forest, linking up live with our team in the autumnal forests of New England. Plus live music in our London studio from Tenebrae and AyseDeniz Gokcin.
Katie Derham presents, as In Tune continues our series featuring daily, live broadcasts from the auburn forests of New Hampshire, USA, as part of the latest instalment of Radio 3’s Into the Forest season. The autumnal transformation of the red leaves of the New England forests is one of the great natural beauties of the world. Working in partnership with BBC2’s Autumnwatch (who are also broadcasting daily from the same forest), each day on In Tune there will be special performances from New England musicians in amongst the golden leaves of the forest, as well as contributions from the Autumnwatch team and a daily dose of slow radio moments captured in New Hampshire by the sound recordists of the BBC Natural History unit. And of course, we also have fabulous live music in our London studio, too: today choral group Tenebrae sing music from their latest CD, which is released on Friday, and young genre-fluid pianist AyseDeniz Gokcin plays music from her new album live.
This week of Into the Forest broadcasts culminates in a special live New England concert in In Tune on Friday (see below). Autumnwatch is on BBC2 Monday to Thursday at 8pm.
Into the Forest is a year-long theme for Radio 3, as the station explores the enduring and magical influence of the forest on music and the arts.
