Colin Davis

Tom Service talks to conductor Colin Davis - as he celebrates 50 years with the London Symphony Orchestra - about the place of orchestral music in the 21st century.

At the Royal Opera House, conductor Antonio Pappano and director Christof Loy discuss their new production of Berg's Lulu, an epic tale of moral and social decline.

And Tom debates the wider links between music and morality with an expert panel - musicologist John Deathridge, composer Deirdre Gribbin and philosopher Roger Scruton.
