To our great sorrow Karlheinz Stockhausen died on 5 December 2007. On 18 January we paid tribute with an all Stockhausen programme. Here is the playlist:

1. Gesang der Junglinge
2. Trans
3. Klavierst├╝ck I-IV
4. Stimmung
5. Helicopter Quartet
6. Cosmic Pulses

Next week Tim is joined by Majella Byrne for a programme on Nuns.


On January 11 2008 Dead and Alive returned to the air, broadcasting a selection of music Tim and I enjoyed over the Christmas break. You heard a largely classical selection, including one of Mozart's violin sonatas and Schubert's final piano sonata in B flat, player piano studies from Conlon Nacarrow before ending with the third movement from Beethoven's string quartet op 132. We hope you enjoyed it.
