Internet radio stations for classical music


I listen to classical music with my Innuous Zenith iii.  I had been focusing on Qobuz, Tidal and Cds stored on the Zenith hard disc.  Just started listening to internet radio.  There are two stations in particular ...audiophile baroque and audiophile classical...that have great sound and programming with no commercials.  Both are based in Greece. They seem to specialize in lesser known composers and seldom play Beethoven, Brahms, Bach, etc.  I’ve discovered many obscure but enjoyable composers on audiophile classical.  I don’t like dissonant music, and they don’t play it.  Highly recommended if you want to discover new music.

I cannot recommend based on a lack of dissonance or any compositional style but I listen to actual radio via internet streaming. My three favorites are; ‘BBC Radio 3’, which is British and of course in English. ‘WDR 3’ from Cologne, Germany which of course is in German but the programming is very high end and lastly, ‘France Musique’ from Paris and offers a good deal of live recordings from local Parisian performances.
Internet streaming is at a disadvantage given file compression. I had hoped that the internet streaming of these stations would be at a higher degree of quality by now but I guess server space is still at a premium. So I just stream these stations via an iMac, Amarra SQ, Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt and a sound bar and I’m usually working while I listen.
