Ann Murray, Schoenberg's New World, Two Boys

Radio 3's weekly music magazine programme, presented by Tom Service.

Irish mezzo-soprano Ann Murray is one of the great voices of the past 50 years. As she prepares to give her last full recital at Wigmore Hall in London, Tom talks to her about her long and distinguished career both on the operatic stage and the concert platform.

A new book about Arnold Schoenberg's years in America throws new light on this controversial period in the composer's life, and Tom meets composer Nico Muhly as his new work about the fatal stabbing of a teenage boy takes shape at English National Opera.
