Can you hear a colour? Today, dipping into music from the Renaissance to the present, Iain Burnside looks at how composers have explored ideas of colour in their work. The journey takes us from the 16th century Field of the Cloth of Gold to Michael Torke's Colour Music; and along the way there'll be contribution from Bach, Bliss, Scriabin and many others.
