Elisabeth Lutyens (1906-83)

Part One

'Elisabeth Lutyens is an outrageous 76-year-old...' began a London Evening Standard article about the composer's life in 1982. Hyperbole or fair comment? Donald Macleod hunts for the truth about this extraordinary figure in a week of programmes celebrating her centenary, beginning with a look at the complex relationship with her parents which so defined her early career.
