Episode 3

Wednesday's programme presents a selection of light music gems suggested by the theme 'Going places', a whistlestop survey of the various ways that different composers have reacted to their surroundings in music - some as arrangers, many as writers of short fripperies and others who brought home from their travels a more substantial musical souvenir. Presented by Donald Macleod.
