Wednesday - Sarah Walker: Sound of Cinema
A selection of music, including the Essential CD of the Week: Petit-Fours: Favourite Things, The Brodsky Quartet CHANDOS CHAN10708; and at 9.30 our daily brainteaser: Back to the Beginning.
Artist of the Week: Julian Bream, who celebrates his 80th birthday this year.
Sarah's guest this week is the writer and philosopher, Roger Scruton. Roger frequently engages in contemporary political and cultural debates from the standpoint of a conservative thinker. His most recent books include Our Church: A Personal History of the Church of England, and Green Philosophy. His books dedicated specifically to music include The Aesthetics of Music and Understanding Music: Philosophy and Interpretation. He has also composed two operas: The Minister, and Violet, based on the life of Violet Gordon-Woodhouse.

Also in this hour, Lucky Dip: Sarah dips into her CD collection and shares a piece - it could be a recent discovery, an old favourite, or simply something that just has to be heard. Expect the unexpected!
