30 April, 1 May - CB Shakespeare 2016

This week's Classical Break was recorded on William Shakespeare's 450th Birthday at the Holburne Museum in Bath where the Bath-based ensemble, Operaletta performed a 90-minute concert around music inspired by and set to the writings of the Bard in 2016.
For the purposes of the broadcast we have had to cut the programme to 58 minutes but a full version of the concert, along with details of the artists and pieces performed is available on the operaletta website.
Thanks to the Holburne Museum and the members of Operaletta for letting us record this concert and
thanks for listening.
This year's Shakespeare concert is quite different, and was recorded at the Holburne on Sunday March 23 2017- Shakespeare's actual birthday. It will be put out in a few weeks.
