John Shea continues BBC Radio 3's celebration of The Spirit of Schubert with performances of songs inspired by his experience of Viennese theatre and opera. Plus the unfinished opera Sakontala - Schubert left just sketches for Acts 1 and 2, but Danish composer Karl Aage Rasmussen has reconstructed the work as we'll hear in this performance by the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen.
