Musicians on Film

2 hours
First broadcast:
Sunday 21 February 2010

Musicians on film.

Suzy Klein and her guest, the film maker John Bridcut, explore musicians' relationship with the silver and small screens; from music written for film, to films about musicians and films of musicians in performance. Do camera and eyes add more than just microphone and ears to our musical experiences? With music by Prokofiev, Elgar and Britten.
