Our current program structure:



Relaxed Morning
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.

Musical Regions
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 240 regional programs.

Afternoon Concerts:
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 110 different four hour programs with limited overlap have been prepared for broadcasting.

Modern Symphonies:
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 120 different four hour programs for this slot.

From mid May to mid July, we will play a number of special programs in this slot, each on a fixed weekday:
  • Wednesday: Remembrance - Music from the World Wars
  • Thursday: Classic Jazz - exploring the wide field between Classical Music and Jazz
  • Friday: Movie Sounds - Classical Film Music
  • Saturday: Modern Women - 20th and 21st century music composed by women
  • Sunday: Romantic Roots - Works from the Romantic and Classic eras alternating with similar scoped Modern works
As usual, those Special Programs are being repeated after midnight for our American listeners. The 3 new Special Programs, Movie Sounds / Modern Women / Romantic Roots, are presented in more detail in the blog. On Monday and Tuesday, the Modern Symphonies are played in their normal schedule.

New Arrivals:
From April 21th to April 27th, we will present our new acquisitions in the timeslot of the Modern Symphonies. The broadcast will be repeated on the next day between midnight and 4:00 a.m..

Evening Sounds:
Between 10:00 p.m. and midnight, we play a selection of quieter works, both orchestral and chamber music.

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.
