Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes - Dawn
Composer: Benjamin Britten
This week's Desert Island Discs will be a form of tribute to the pianist John Ogdon, who died last month.
In the programme, you can hear about his early musical life and his enormous success on the international music scene - a success which was cut short by a devastating nervous breakdown which brought his career to a halt. During his conversation with Sue Lawley, he talked about that illness, his eventual recovery and subsequent return to the concert platform and recording studios.
