Our current program structure:
Starting about 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m., we broadcast our Relaxed Morning Program. In this program, we mix Guitar works from modern composers with selected Jazz musicians like Rabih Abou-Khalil (Lebanon), Anouar Brahem (Tunesia), Abdullah Ibrahim (South Africa), Didier Squiban (Bretagne) and Moondog, a composer difficult to categorize. Recently, we have added neo-classical piano music from Antonija Pacek and Enrico Vallone to the programs.
Between about 10:00 a.m. and about 2:00 p.m., we look at the music from a special region or country. Currently, we have set up more than 270 regional programs.
Between about 2:00 and 6:00 p.m., you will hear modern concerts, composed by Martinu, Genzmer, Hindemith, Shostakovich and many other composers. We play solo concerts as well as orchestral concerts here. More than 115 different four hour programs with limited overlap have been prepared for broadcasting.
Between about 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., our program focuses on symphonies and related works in our portfolio. In most of the Symphonic Evenings, one symphony from Shostakovich or from Bohuslav Martinu will be played, but of course many other composers like Galina Ustwolskaja, Reinhold Gliere, David Diamond or Albert Roussel can be heard, too. We have currently prepared more than 130 different four hour programs for this slot.
On weekends, we may replace the "Modern Symphonies" by special programs. Starting from April 17, 2021, e.g., we will broadcast the "Movie Sounds" series over 4 weekends.
Evening Sounds / Pianissimo:
Between 10:00 p.m. and midnight, we play a selection of quieter works, both orchestral and chamber music. In addition to the mixed "Evening Sounds" program, we have added the "Pianissimo" program dedicated only to piano music. We will alternate between these two programs.
Between midnight and 4:00 a.m., the previous day's 'Musical Regions' program is repeated, to give our American listeners the opportunity to enjoy those programs. Between 4:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m., we play various shorter works from our portfolio.
Time listed here is Berlin time (GMT - 1 hour, -2 hours during Daylight Saving Time)! Due to slightly varying program lengths and commercial breaks we have no influence on, the times given are an estimate, with deviations of up to 10 minutes to be expected.
