The Mandolin

Sunday 8 June 2008 0:00-1:00 (Radio 3)

With a history stretching back over 400 years, the mandolin has always been popular for informal music-making. Lucie Skeaping talks to mandolin player Alison Stephens, who traces the instrument's journey following on from its medieval and Renaissance ancestors. Music includes works by Vivaldi, Scarlatti and Leone.
