Private Passions is a radio show where guests from all walks of life discuss their musical loves and hates, and talk about the influence music has had on their lives. Roger Allam was a guest in 2016.
Below the video I have uploaded the musical pieces Roger Allam speaks of where possible.
(Les Miserables) Singer: Roger Allam.
Maurice Ravel Asie (Sheherazade)
Singer: Margaret Price
Nocturne (Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings)
Performer: Dennis Brain. Singer: Peter Pears.
Estampie Royal no.6
Johann Sebastian Bach
Goldberg Variations: Variation no.14
Performer: Angela Hewitt.
I couldn’t find Angela Hewitt performing Variation no. 14 but here she is performing what I believe is sections of The Goldberg Variations 1 – 5.
Symphony No.4 (4th mvt)
I couldn’t find a video with the singer Juliane Banse. However, here is the same piece but sung by Edith Mathis.
Das Wirthaus (Winterreise)
Singer: Dietrich Fischer‐Dieskau.
I couldn’t find the exact piece that was played on the show but this is a section of the same classical piece with the singer Dietrich Fischer‐Dieskau.
La Vierge et ‘Enfant (La Nativite du Seigneur)
Performer Jennifer Bate.
I hope you all enjoyed this post. Take care everyone.
