To complement its digital resource portal dedicated to the French musical heritage of the nineteenth century, Bru Zane Mediabase, ICMA Special Award winner Palazzetto Bru Zane has launch Bru Zane Classical Radio, a web radio that will stream non-stop programmes of French Romantic music twenty-four hours a day.
Twenty-four hours a day, Bru Zane Classical Radio webcasts a programme consisting entirely of music and reflecting the richness and variety of the French Romantic repertory over a period stretching from the 1780s to the end of the First World War. Every genre is represented, from chamber music to opera and operetta, from the orchestral and sacred repertories to the more intimate mélodie and romance.
While it also plays key works by famous masters, Bru Zane Classical Radio accords an important place to the rediscovery of less well-known composers. Its programme draws on a catalogue of nearly 2,000 titles, generally webcast in their entirety. Every Sunday evening at 21.00 CET, an operatic slot offers an opportunity to hear a complete performance of a rare French opera.
For music lovers who wish to increase their knowledge of French Romantic music, the radio player offers direct access to Bru Zane Mediabase, the online database of the Palazzetto Bru Zane, thus enabling them to consult information about the composers and works they are listening to.
