The last 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 tragedy, romance or defiance. 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 hope, with arts critic Charlotte Higgins and composer Tarik O'Regan talking to Suzy about Handel, Richard Strauss and Reich.
