WORLDWIDE RADIO BROADCAST OF 8-HOUR SLEEP THIS WEEKEND

BBC Radio 3 to broadcast overnight on Easter Saturday/Sunday in the UK, five years after it premiered the work live from London.
Simulcast with the European Broadcasting Union in over 19 countries worldwide.

Five years ago I wrote SLEEP as an invitation to pause our busy lives for a moment. Now we are all facing an unexpected and unwelcome pause. It is far from easy to adjust to this new normal, which daily brings fresh anxiety and suffering to our communities, to those we love, and to ourselves. At this time the magical ability of creativity to elevate our days and to connect us with one another is more valuable than ever, and I’m really happy that BBC Radio 3 and the EBU will allow us to listen all together across the world. Please stay home, stay safe, and enjoy this 8-hour place to rest with those you love. -Max
