Dear William,

I wish I had thought to email you about this yesterday, when Chineke! chamber players played George Walker’s ‘Lyric’ for Strings ‘live’ on BBC radio 3 ‘In Tune’ Christmas Special. 

Violins: Tai Murray, Mandhira De Saram
Viola: Clifton Harrison
Cello: Ashok Klouda
Double bass: Chi-chi Nwanoku 

Everyone was blown away by the beauty of George’s writing, and even the presenters commented on air that they will now be seeking out more of his repertoire.

Here is a link to the programme 

The Walker comes in at around 50’. I do hope you are able to share it, and that the link works. Sometimes I know it is not possible to get BBC playbacks outside of UK.

This performance is possibly the first ‘live’ performance of George Walker’s music on BBC Radio 3.

Best wishes

Chi-chi Nwanoku MBE, FRAM
