Ancient Greek music

Post by pogmoor » Thu Feb 01, 2018 12:36 pm

Just listening to a programme on the BBC Radio iPlayer on the music of ancient Greece, broadcast last Sunday in the regular Early Music series. It focussed on an Oxford academic who has researched and reconstructed some of the music from around the time of Sappho (approx the 500's BC) and featured some live performance and recordings from a concert at the Ashmolean museum last year.

Fascinating stuff! Available for a month I believe.
