Notturno

Euroradio Notturno, launched in 1998, is a night-time broadcast, made up of three two-hour interchangeable modules, occasionally on given themes. The programming consists of EBU Members' Selections that are edited and produced by the BBC.

Notturno is now broadcast in 12 countries and can claim around one million listeners per night. No commercial CDs are used, and the rights for the offers have been cleared in advance.

Objectives

  • Provide participating Members with the distinctiveness of live concert recordings, thereby giving them a unique opportunity to complement and enhance their own classical music channels, especially in the face of growing international competition
  • Allow each Radio Member to promote in-house music ensembles and its country’s national music, artists and festivals
  • Help listeners to discover new artists from all over Europe

Detailed deliverables / timelines

  • Detailed programme is published online up to two months in advance
  • Open for all Members and Associates to join
