Mitsuko shares her enthusiasm for the composers Debussy, Beethoven and particularly Franz Schubert, his personality and his music.

There's a follow-up to our report on sexual harassment in the classical music industry and cultural commentator Greg Sandow and Tom discuss the recent suspension of conductor James Levine, from the Metropolitan Opera New York, and we hear from composer Eduardo Reck Miranda and Ensemble Bash as they workshop Eduardo's new work 'Artibiotics' for percussion and electronics, inspired by a European research project to discover new antibiotics.
