2011: Creative Communication

Announced 8 May 2012


BBC Radio 3: Hear and Now 50

From an excellent, challengingly diverse shortlist BBC Radio 3’s ongoing series Hear and Now 50 won for dispelling, with such elegant brevity, the myths which for too long have isolated so many of the wonders of 20th-century music from wider appreciation. The availability of the broadcasts for download in perpetuity enhances their value, and the clever mixture of personal perspective and expertise shows Radio 3 at its best.
