This Sunday, back in 1883, some of Europe's wealthiest (and most adventurous!) individuals were preparing for the journey of a life-time, their tickets booked for the first ever departure of the Orient Express from Paris. Today Suzy Klein plays music connected with places en route, welcomes Mark Swartzentruber to the studio for the archive spot, chooses some exciting forthcoming concerts across the UK, and selects another topic that divides musical opinion.
