BBC To Air Dalmatian Music Show

 

BBC radio in the UK will dedicate a one-hour show this Saturday to Dalmatian music.

Catherine Bott presents a programme of little-known Renaissance & Baroque music from Croatia & Dalmatia. Robert Hollingworth conducts the BBC Singers in specially made recordings of pieces by the Italian-born Tommaso Cecchino as well as home-grown composers Julije Skjavetic, Vinko Jelic and Ivan Lukacic. Much of their music was written for churches in Dubrovnik, Sibenik, Split and on the island of Hvar, said the BBC promo for the show.
