Discussing tragedy in music, Suzy Klein is joined by conductor Nicholas Collon and composer Anna Meredith to talk about Bach, Strauss and Shostakovich.
The fourth in a six-part series of lively conversations examining how and why certain pieces of music make us feel the way they do. In each programme, presenter Suzy Klein and two guests explore a theme such as tragedy, glory or romance. They champion favourite pieces that evoke the theme and discuss just what it is about the music that pulls these emotional strings. Tonight's theme is tragedy, with Aurora Orchestra's principal conductor Nicholas Collon and composer Anna Meredith talking to Suzy about Bach, Richard Strauss and Shostakovich.
