The Essay, Secret Admirers Episode 1 of 5
Listen in pop-out player

Radio 3 presenter Sarah Walker celebrates a composer whose music has particularly inspired her: 'English Experimentalist' John White - who, as well as being a dedicated opponent of "seriosity" in classical music, is the spitting image of Hollywood actor Jack Nicholson.

This is the first of five editions of The Essay in which Radio 3 classical music presenters celebrate lesser-known composers whose 'secret admirers' they are. Coming up from Tuesday to Friday:
Tom Service on Arnold Bax
Lucie Skeaping on Thomas Ravenscroft
Martin Handley on Malcolm Arnold
Sara Mohr-Pietsch on Hildegard of Bingen.
