Thomas Simpson was one of the leading figures among the English expatriate musicians active on the Continent in the early 1600s. He compiled his 'Taffel-Consort', a collection of instrumental music by Simpson, Dowland, Ferrabosco and others, in 1621, when the hardships of the 30 Years War were having a serious effect on the publication of music in Germany.

Dante's La vita nuova, adapted by NICHOLAS RENTON, in a new translation by GRAHAM FAWCETT.
With Mike Gwilym and David Marrick as the older and the Younger Dante Alighieri and Philip Sully as Love.
La vita nuova (c.1249) is a collection of 31 poems arranged within an autobiographical Prose framework. Dante relates his own youthful love story: how, aged 9, he first saw the 9-year-old Beatrice Portinari; now, nine years later, she greeted him and he fell desperately in love with her; how he concealed that love; how, on her death at the age of 24, he found consolation and how he saw in her the ultimate Perfection of womanhood.
With GWEN CHERRELL. DAVID GARTH. JANE LEONARD. JAMES MACPHERSON. NATASHA PYNE, MELINDA WALKER and TESSA WORSLEY.
Italian voices GIAN CARLO ciccone. EMMA DINVERNO and GIGI GATTI.
Music by ILONA SEKACZ sung by NICOLE TIBBELS (soprano).
With the views of PETER LEVI , Professor of Poetry at Oxford, and DR PAMELA WILLIAMS. Dante scholar at Hull University.
Directed by JOHN THEOCHARIS
Paul Rutherford thinks that the two most vital ingredients in music are composition and improvisation, and he is fascinated by the apparent contradictions which rnusicians encounter between them.
To try out his theories, in the autumn of 1987 he wrote
Autumn Initiatives as the basis for a 19-piece orchestra including two pianos, two
French horns and two basses. Charles Fox introduces a recording of the work that the orchestra performed in Islington Town Hall, London. Between the two halves of the work he talks to Paul Rutherford.
