James Jolly's musical selections look at the theme of transformation, including Britten's Metamorphoses, and this week's Bach Cantata.

Musical transformations form the core of James Jolly's selections this week, with music from Dvorak, Handel and Massenet, pus Britten's Six Metamorphoses After Ovid. There's sparkling regal music from Sir William Walton, plus historic discs by Dame Myra Hess. This week's Bach cantata is Es ist das Heil uns kommen her (It is our salvation come here to us), BWV 9, in a performance directed by Karl Richter and featuring the late Dietrich Fischer Dieskau.
