Charles Burney

Sunday 10 August 2008 0:00-1:00 (Radio 3)

Lucie Skeaping talks to musicologist Ian Gammie about the life and travels of the inimitable Charles Burney. The 18th century music-writer, teacher, organist and composer was well known for having opinions on just about everything and, during his extensive travels through Europe, he met some of the great musical luminaries of his day, including Padre Martini, Scarlatti and even the young Mozart.
