Tuesday - Petroc's classical alarm call

Petroc Trelawny presents Radio 3's classical breakfast show. Today's programme includes music chosen by today's young "Take Five" musician, the trombonist Peter Moore. This is part of our week-long season exploring and celebrating the music worlds through the eyes and ears of five young musicians. Peter Moore is a Belfast-born musician is possibly the best advert ever for the trombone. Peter has garnered spectacular reviews for his concerts, imbuing the instrument (as one stunned reviewer put it) with “the eloquence and nobility that one might have though impossible except by the human voice.” Peter is the youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Musician competition which he won in 2008, aged just 12 years, and a former Radio 3 New Generation Artist.

Listen out for Peter. This fantastic musician will be appearing on Radio 3 programmes throughout the day with music suggestions and interviews, including performing himself later on today's In Tune.
