Electric Tippett

Saturday 14 May 2005 20:25-20:45 (Radio 3)

Tippett's deployment of a twanging electric guitar in The Knot Garden was a first for him, and he went on to include it in The Ice Break, New Year and The Songs for Dov.

Steve Martland explores whether Tippett was being genuine or just trendy in his use of the instrument from the 1970s onwards. With contributions from Sir Colin Davis, Robert Tear and guitarist Steve Smith.

Duration:

20 minutes
