Duration:

First broadcast:

Donald Macleod explores the life and work of Moritz Moszkowski.

He focuses on how Moszkowski often saw the funny side of life, responding to heavy criticism of his worth as a composer with amusing retorts and creating a comical musical parody of eight more famous composers called 'Anton Note-squasher'.
