3MBS Beethoven Marathon
Central to Ludwig van Beethoven's magnificent body of work are his 32 piano sonatas. Now, for the first time in Australia, experience all 32 of these sonatas over a 14-hour piano marathon extravaganza.
Featuring 28 of Australia’s finest pianists, playing one sonata after another, this event will be a highlight on Melbourne’s 2013 musical calendar.
From his earliest attempt in 1795 to his final effort in 1822, Beethoven's piano sonatas stand with the Sistine Chapel and Shakespeare's plays as one of the towering forces of human achievement.
3MBS Beethoven Marathon is an opportunity to hear one of the most important and beloved cycles of Western music in a single day.

Snap! 3MBS captures live performance every week!
Snapshots is an exciting new initiative which we are proud to present into our regular programming schedule. A spontaneous intermission to our regular programming schedule, Snapshots is a series of live performances by local up-and-coming, emerging and established performers covering a diversity of fine music styles and genres.
During the series, you'll instantly be immersed in the sounds of a broad cross section of Australian contemporary fine music; in particular, the work of local emerging and established performers and composers.
Performing from the Lady Marigold Southey Performance Studio, each Snapshot is of 5-10 minutes in duration and feature at random intervals during our weekday programs. We just love to keep you on the edge of your seat! After the series, we'll also offer tracks of fine music to other Community Radio stations via AMRAP’s AirIt platform.
Wrapping up in mid December and commencing again in February 2013, make sure you stay tuned to 3MBS - who knows when the next Snapshot might be...
Snapshots is kindly supported by the Community Broadcasting Foundation.
