Max Reinhardt invites pianist Zoe Rahman to join him in the studio and asks her to conjure spontaneous musical reactions to pieces of music of his choosing.

On the eve of St George's Day he also celebrates many of the diverse musical traditions which have been gathering in England over the decades: folk from Waterson Carthy, Lol Coxhill improvising through a Beatles number, Tudor Polyphony from The Sixteen, the poetic dub of Linton Kwesi Johnson, and Pixelh8's musical Observations of the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge.
