The very best from O/Modernt at a glance

At the heart of O/Modernt is the creation of programmes that, through the imaginative and adventurous combination of old and new, awaken innovative listening.

Our programmes delight in taking the listener on journeys filled with both playful curiosity and contemplative inquiry.

Highly original programmes in which the so-called ‘old’ – for which read timeless – comes up freshest in the company of the new. —The Arts Desk
