Samuel Beckett Works for Radio (audio CD)
Works for Radio
The Original Broadcasts
The works created by Beckett for radio broadcast by the BBC are relatively unknown to the general public, but now they are made commercially available for the first time.
This four-CD set spans the period 1957 - 1976 and collects together the five works: All That Fall, Embers, Words and Music, Cascando and Rough for Radio, plus the rarely heard curio The Old Tune (Beckett's translation of Robert Pinget's La Manivelle), and the monologue From an Abandoned Work, which at the time of its transmission was unpublished in Britain.
