Wednesday - Sarah Walker
A selection of music including the Essential CD of the Week: Poulenc chamber music from Pascal Roge and friends: DECCA 4757097
A daily brainteaser and performances by the Artist of the Week, the instrumentalist, composer and conductor Jordi Savall.
In the week of the Chelsea Flower Show, Sarah's guest is the award-winning landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith. Tom Stuart-Smith was a child chorister and plays the violin, so music has always been a passion for him. His favourite composers range from Bach to Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Verdi, Wagner, Messiaen and Schoenberg.
