Michael Berkeley's guest this week is Sir George young MP. A keen fan of opera, Sir George's musical choices range from Mozart (Don Giovanni) and Verdi (Don Carlos) to Gilbert and Sullivan (The Pirates of Penzance). Choral music is also a passion of Sir George - with excerpts from Haydn's Nelson Mass and Donizetti's Messa di Gloria - and his love of chamber music is reflected by Schubert's Quartettsatz and Hummel's Octet Partita.
