Three cheers for Radio 3

People grumble that it isn't what it was, but the output on BBC Radio 3 remains pretty amazing, and these days there is the great bonus of being able to "listen again" via the web for up to a week. While driving earlier today, I caught a few minutes of what seemed a strikingly good performance of the Beethoven op. 132 quartet. It turned out to by the Skampa Quartet. I've just "listened again" to the whole performance: I'd say it is extremely well worth catching here (click on "Afternoon on 3" for Tuesday, the Beethoven quartet starts about 19 minutes in). Terrific stuff.
