Musical maverick Jacob Collier welcomes BBC Radio 3 listeners into his legendary music room, presenting a special selection of music from across the world, crossing musical genres

  • The programmes include two exclusive new recordings by Collier on solo piano, presenting Nora Jonesí Nightingale and Burt Bacharachís Alfie - as captured in his music room
  • Also featured on 29 December is the first broadcast of a unique Collier family performance of Mozartís Ave Verum Corpus recorded at home during lockdown with Jacobís mother and sisters
  • Music selected includes pieces by Benjamin Britten, Flying Lotus, Hermeto Pascoal, and Erykah Badu among others

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier takes listeners on a musical journey around the world with Jacob Collierís Music Room, two programmes recorded exclusively for BBC Radio 3 from his music studio in his family home in North London - where he has spent most of 2020, as global lockdowns supplanted his busy touring schedule. In these episodes, the young British prodigy - with four acclaimed albums under his belt; a management deal with legendary producer and arranger Quincy Jones; four Grammy awards; and three nominations for the 2021 Grammys - presents the music that has accompanied him through this unprecedented year.

Jacobís choices are an eclectic selection of pieces of all different genres from all over the world, including works by Benjamin Britten, Flying Lotus, Sam Amidon, Sir John Tavener, Erykah Badu, Hermeto Pascoal, and Jonathan Dove among others. A special end-of-year treat for the listeners, Jacob also shares three performances recorded exclusively for the Radio 3 programmes: his solo piano renditions of Norah Jonesí Nightingale and Burt Bacharachís Alfie, alongside Mozartís Ave Verum Corpus featuring himself with his mother - violinist Suzie Collier - and two sisters Sophie and Ella.

The two music room episodes were recorded in Collierís famous creative retreat, where a few years back - surrounded by a myriad of instruments - he started uploading to the web the viral videos of his versions of classic pieces in music history across genres and decades - all performed by himself playing multiple instruments and singing harmonies.
