John Wheatley

Sunday 28 August 2005 12:00-13:00 (Radio 3)

Michael Berkeley's guest today is the architect John Wheatley, who was closely associated with the redevelopment of the City of London from the 1980s onwards.

Architecture, art and music have shaped a major part of his professional life, and his musical passions show a fascination with the conjunction of oriental and western music, the influence of jazz, and composers such as Messiaen and Scriabin who were preoccupied with philosophical and mystical concepts.
