Ashkenazy, the reel-time rerun

Ashkenazy, the reel-time rerun

Quite by chance, I have just heard that the BBC will be running a repeat of my Lebrecht Interview with Vladimir Ashkenazy this weekend – the one in which he discloses his recruitment by the KGB and his ‘accidental’ defection to the West.

I may be the last person to know about this programme, but since a lot of people have asked me if they could hear it again, I thought I should pass on the information. 

The broadcast is on Radio 3, Sunday night at 2130, at which time I shall – quite by chance – be having a private conversation with Mr Ashkenazy about this and that.

The details can be found at and the programme can be heard online for a week.
