Rachel Roberts – Radio 3 Record Review – ‘The Heavens and the Heart’

On Saturday 17th November, BBC Radio 3’s ‘Record Review’, featured ‘The Heavens and the Heart’, a disc of James Francis Brown’s orchestral and choral music, released in November of this year. As part of the review, the station played the opening of James Francis Brown’s Trio Concertante for string trio and string orchestra, with agency artist Rachel Roberts as the violist alongside Benjamin Nabarro (violin), Gemma Rosefield (cello) and Orchestra Nova.

The clip on ‘Record Review’ can be heard here, from 1:31:50 to 1:39:20, and will be available until the 16th December.

Rachel first performed the Trio Concertante at last year’s Presteigne Festival, with the same line-up of soloists and the Presteigne Festival Orchestra, directed by George Vass (Artistic Director of the festival).
