Concluding the week exploring
Weber's works through the comments of composers who have both loved and learnt from his music.
"His music is the best treatise on orchestration. Even in our time. so rich in orchestral chemistry, he's hardly been surpassed. He reveals the secret soul of each instrument"
Debussy's recollections introduce highlights from Weber's dramatic swansong Oberon - the door to "that magic world with which Weber enriched our art" - and the Concertino for clarinet and orchestra.

Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli : fighter pilot, resistance worker, racing driver and the most enigmatic of pianists died a year ago this week. In the first of two programmes, Susan Sharpe looks at the life and career of this elusive prince of the keyboard - a pianist famed alike for his mesmeric perfectionism, his doleful platform manner and his last-minute cancellations. The programme includes interviews with friends and colleagues of the pianist as well as BBC archive recordings dating back to the 1950s including music by Schumann and Chopin. Producer Peter Thresh
