Stephen Johnson introduces the first of four programmes paying tribute to Antony Hopkins, composer and presenter of the long-running radio series "Talking About Music", who died earlier this year. Stephen examines why these programmes, in which Hopkins analysed a classical work that was due to be broadcast during the following week, are so fondly remembered and he unpicks some of the essential aspects of Hopkins's style.
