Mozart's Pets by Judith Bingham featured in Radio 3's 'Essential Classics' on Tursday 9 January. You can hear the segment from 1:04:55 in the programme.

In March 2023 (see below) we reported that Shea Lolin and Chris Hussey had been in Prague to record music for the woodwind orchestra by Keiron Anderson, Judith Bingham OBE, Charlotte Harding and Christopher Hussey and Kamran Ince. The pieces were performed by the woodwind section of the Czech Philharmonic.

The recordings have now been edited and are available as a CD called Chromosphere which will be published by the the record label Divine Art (DDX 21117). on Friday 12 January.

BBC Radio 3 chose to play two of the movements from the Judith Bingham work in its programme. This piece was the last major commission organised by Shea while he was director of music for BWE.

Two other BBC Radio 3  programmes played  tracks from the CD over the same weekend.  You can find the details on Shea' web site.
