It is the 60th anniversary of Webern‘s death. BBC Radio 3 is celebrating with a Webern-palooza event. His complete works, in chronological order, will be broadcast throughout the day.
(So that means approximately one work every other hour or so. Right?)
In the evening there will be a panel discussion about Webern’s life and later works with Webern biographers Malcolm Hayes and Katherine Bailey as well as the British composer Julian Johnson.
p.s. Julian Johnson is the author of the wonderful book, “Who Needs Classical Music?”
