So you missed the live broadcast of “Cooler Classics” tonight?
Not to worry..you can listen to the whole show on the “Listen Again” feature….
The main item was a look at the career of the late Rudolf Kempe. There is an international Rudolf Kempe Society based in Stratford-upon-Avon, and it was there that I met my interview guest Anthony Negus, who was taking part in a recital with actor Zubin Varla and actress Ruth Lass.
Anthony reviews the recently completed Longborough Festival Opera season, and prepares (this week!!) for next year’s Festival!!
