Gunther Schuller at 80

Sunday 2 January 2005 21:30-22:15 (Radio 3)

Gunther Schuller has done more than anyone to break down the barriers between jazz and classical music to create a new form which he described as 'Third Stream'. He can be seen as the godfather of the principle of crossover, fusion and the eclectic perspective which dominates music today. And his many-sided career as a player, composer, conductor, teacher and critic, reflects his many-sided view of music.

Geoffrey Smith explores Gunther Schuller's multifarious career and the controversies it has generated, talking with jazz musicians Joe Lovano and George Russell; composers taught by Schuller including Oliver Knussen, Mark-Anthony Turnage and Mike Gibbs; students from New England Conservatory in Boston and music critics.

Duration:

45 minutes
