On Tuesday June 21 I will be broadcasting on WHPK-FM Chicago the recent acclaimed Lyrita recording of Jamaican/British composer Eleanor Alberga's Violin Concerto No 1.

A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music in London Ms. Alberga has composed numerous works for orchestra including 2 violin concertos, chamber music, work for solo piano and operas.

This recording features the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Joseph Swensen and the solo violinist is Thomas Bowes who also happens to be Ms. Alberga's husband.

Also on the pr0gram will be John Adam's oratorio The Gospel According to the Other Mary. And as always my show can be hard on WHPK locally from 12-3PM (Central Time) in the Chicago area on 88.5FM and worldwide on the station livestream at whpk.org
