Scott, Burns and Beethoven

In 1818 Beethoven's 25 Scottish Songs set to music the words of writers like Robert Burns and James Hogg. Robert Crawford and Fiona Stafford discuss how the Romantic Movement linked the composer with the poetry of Scottish writers like Burns, James Macpherson and Walter Scott. Susan Hitch presents with readings by David Rintoul.

Recorded in front of an audience at the Royal College of Music as part of this year's Proms Plus events.
