Three to look out for


Alan Davey, the controller of BBC Radio 3, picks out three great moments to tune into this June

Mark Simpson’s Clarinet Concerto

It must be a thrill for a composer to be able to write themselves into their music, and Mark Simpson – equally skilled as composer and clarinetti­st – has done just that. He will be performing the premiere of his Clarinet Concerto among an epic programme of Mozart and Mahler.

Radio 3 in Concert; 18 June, 7.30pm

BBC Cardiff Singer of the World

The biennial competitio­n that helped launch the careers of Jamie Barton, Dmitri Hvorostovs­ky and Bryn Terfel (see Timepiece, p16) returns to BBC Radio 3 and TV this month for its 36th year. Singers from across the world compete for the top prizes. Radio 3 in Concert; 20 & 22 June, 6.30pm

Aldeburgh Festival
