Paul Gambaccini welcomes the first of the competitors in the 2019 tournament of the wide-ranging music quiz.
The 33rd season of Radio 4's eclectic music quiz gets under way with three competitors hoping their musical knowledge could take them all the way to the Counterpoint title in the autumn. Paul Gambaccini's questions range from favourite symphonies to Hollywood musicals, and from classic pop and soul to opera and cantatas. As always the competitors will be asked to pick a musical topic on which to answer their own individual questions, with no prior warning of the subjects and no chance to prepare.
Taking part today are:
Alex Denman, a copywriter from Bristol
Neil Morgan, an airline pilot from Hampshire
Rufus Stilgoe, a writer from South London
Producer: Paul Bajoria
