Inspired by live mixes and late-night radio broadcasting, and evocative of the sizzle and crackle that accompanied new musical discoveries on a bakelite tuning dial, Radio Amore is designed as a musical journey – a voyage of wonder, vitality and emotion.

Commissioned by Tŷ Cerdd, and part concert, part imaginary late-night radio broadcast, Radio Amore fuses new work from Barber in a live mix of Baroque and contemporary classics. The eclectic mix includes music by Pergolesi and Handel alongside extracts of oboe concerti by Vivaldi, Corelli and Albinoni as well as theatre music by Purcell, film music by Michael Nyman, transcriptions of Italian music by Sir John Barbirolli and radio-inspired works by Charlie Barber.

The live mix is performed by Italian oboist Michele Batani, alongside British musicians the Mavron String Quartet and bassist Ashley-John Long.

The performance lasts c. 60 minutes.
