During selected shows, e.g. "Das Werk" (weekdays 7 to 8pm) or the Wednesday evening show "Aus dem MDR Musikarchiv" (from the music archives) classical music highlights are broadcast in full-length. You can listen to alternative formats and styles exceeding musical borders. The spectrum ranges from e.g. Bach to Orff, contemporary music like Henze, Legrand, Zimmermann and McMillan, popular sinfony, opera, operetta, piano, musical guitar music to classic-adapting entertainment pieces.
