Musical Games

Rob Cowan explores how composers including Debussy, Bartok and Janacek have depicted games in music. He also concludes the current Mozart symphony cycle with No. 18, K130, and adds a little more Mozart for good measure. In the final hour, the week's piano quintet is by Dmitri Shostakovich.
