The second in a six-part series of lively conversations examining how and why certain pieces of music make us feel the way they do. In each programme, presenter Suzy Klein and two guests explore a theme such as melancholy, glory or romance. They champion favourite pieces that evoke the theme and discuss just what it is about the music that pulls these emotional strings. Tonight's theme is defiance, with choreographer Siobhan Davies and composer/artist Tom Phillips talking to Suzy about Britten, Stravinsky and the Dies Irae plainchant.
