The Master and Margarita on the radio

January 7, 2013

The Concertzender (Concert Channel) is a Dutch radio channel providing 24-hour digital broadcast. Once a month, the station broadcasts the programme Oorgetuige (Earwitness), a series covering Russian music from the 20th century. Well, it's Russian music in general, because on Monday, January 14, 2013, the exciting sound of Sympathy For The Devil by The Rolling Stones will burst from the speakers.

That is because, on that very day, the Concertzender will present the 54th episode of Earwitness, and this time it will be a two-hour programme solely dedicated to music inspired by The Master and Margarita.

Besides the Rolling Stones you can also listen to the music which Alfred Schnittke wrote for the film Master i Margarita by Yuri Kara, the symphonic fantasy Master i Margarita written by the Russian composer Andrei Petrov, and the music for the ballet Master i Margarita composed by the Moldovan composer Edouard Lazarev.

After January 14, the program will be rebroadcast twice: on Friday, January 18, and on Thursday, January 24, 2013.
