The Story of the Symphony Andre Previn with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra leader BARRY GRIFFITHS In this final programme
Andre Previn looks at the way many 20th-century composers, each from a different standpoint, have persistently turned to large-scale symphonic writing, although working at a time when the very vocabulary of music has continually outstripped its audience.
To Shostakovich (whose
Fifth Symphony concludes this series) there was the added threat that his music incurred Stalin's official displeasure when terror raged across Russia and 'difficult' composers disappeared overnight.
Shostakovich was certain he would be arrested. He always kept a small suitcase packed and ready.
But Stalin was too clever to eliminate Shostakovich; like many dictators Stalin appreciated the propaganda potential of art. Yet, when this Fifth Symphony of Shostakovich eventually appeared, it was the composer, not the politician, who ultimately triumphed. Vision mixer ANGELA WILSON

(Gli occhi, la bocca) starring
Fading film star Giovanni returns home for his brother's funeral and is promptly drawn into a tangle of deceit and love as he tries to reconcile conflicting loyalties.
Marco Bellocchio caused a furore in Italy with his first film Fists in the Pocket, which was seen as a scurrilous if stylish attack on family life. Its star, Lou Castel , is reunited with Bellocchio in Those Eyes, That Mouth, an ironic, partly autobiographical, reappraisal of the constricting ties of the family and of the past.
