12 Composers you've (probably) never heard of

Jamie plays amazing music by 12 composers you've probably never heard of- including Nikolai Tcherepin, who wrote sumptious choral ballets before Ravel ever thought of it; Phillipp Erlebach, a baroque genius to rival Bach and Handel whose work was nearly all lost in a fire; and the memorably-named Samuel Scheidt.

Also includes Music that Made a Difference from Wynne Evans and the Gig of the Week.
