Staff lecturer on Radio 4 programme

Professor Pwyll ap Siôn will be contributing to a series on BBC Radio 4 in January called 'All in a Chord', which looks at the development of harmony on the history of music. The five programmes, which are broadcast between 9-13 January, will chart the use of innovative chords ranging from Beethoven's 'Eroica' Symphony to minimalist composer Terry Riley's 'In C'. Pwyll, who has published a number of books on minimalist music, and recently received a Leverhulme Research Fellowship to study the music of Steve Reich, will be contributing to the programme on Riley's 'In C'. The programme will be introduced by Ivan Hewett.
