8.20pm Interval: Pied Piper
During the intervals of the concerts this week, we'll be hearing a selection of programmes from the five year long series. Munrow explored a wide range of music, and these five programmes can only begin to give a taste of the topics he covered. This edition of Pied Piper presented by David Munrow and first broadcast on 2nd April 1976 completed a week of programmes looking at music inspired by the stars. As well as introducing music connected with the figure of Neptune, David Munrow interviews Patrick Moore. A fascinating opportunity to hear Munrow and Moore discussing astronomy and Music in the mid 1970s.

Composer-conductor Matthias Pintscher rejoins the orchestra of which he is Artist-in-Association to explore Russian classics: Rachmaninov's dark-hued symphonic poem The Isle of the Dead; and Tchaikovsky's romantically melodious Symphony No 5.
