Andrzej Panufnik as BBC Radio 3's Composer of the Week
Since 1943, BBC Radio 3 has chosen a composer each week to be extensively presented on the station. The week beginning on 22 September, 2014, will be dedicated to Andrzej Panufnik.
The Composer of the Week series’ first programme, dedicated to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was broadcast on 2nd August, 1943, at 7:30 AM and lasted only 25 minutes. Listeners had an opportunity to hear marvellous performances of Violin Sonata No. 26 in B-flat major and Violin Sonata in A major, KV 526 by Yehudi Mehunin – then a 27- year-old violinist.
