Interweaving roles as pianist and award-winning broadcaster with equal aplomb, Iain Burnside is also a master programmer with an instinct for the telling juxtaposition. His previous work for the RIAM, Ten Thousand Miles Away and Drums and Guns, has been described as "a triumph of ambition" (The Sunday Business Post) and "a stirring program outside of the usual" (Voce di meche). This year Iain Burnside takes audiences on a panoramic journey from the earliest French song composers up to Les Six and beyond in a programme entitled Voyage à Paris - a Journey through French Mélodies.
