Karel Sejna was chief conductor of the Czech Philharmonic for only one season - 1949/50, between the tenures of the better-known Rafael
Kubelik and Karel Ancerl. He had been principal double-bass in the orchestra since 1921 under Vaclav Talich , who directly influenced the development of his musicality and his exceptionally keen ear. Jan Smaczny samples recent Supraphon reissues in which Karel Sejna conducts music by Smetana, Dvorak, Suk and Martinu.

Roderick Swanston asks six leading performers of early music to reveal the personal element in their music-making. 4: Reinhard Goebel
Reinhard Goebel 's impassioned performances with his ensemble

Farina Sonata in G minor for violin and continuo (La Desperata)

Continuing the series of broadcasts from the ambitious, long-term festival in which the Royal Opera presents all of Verdi's operas, performed over the period leading up to the centenary of the composer's death in 2001. This broadcast from the Royal Opera
House, Covent Garden, features the grandest of the composer's operas, composed to a libretto by Joseph Mery and Camille du Locle for performance at the Paris Opera in 1867. Andrew Lyle and Michael Oliver introduce a rare opportunity to hear Don Carlos performed in its original French and including some unfamiliar passages which Verdi later revised.
Verdi Don Carlos
Royal Opera Chorus, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, conductor Bernard Haitink
Acts 1 and 2 7.35 Schiller and Verdi
Don Carlos was Verdi's fourth and final encounter with German dramatist
Friedrich Schiller. What attracted Verdi to the playwright and, in particular, to a play which some might find - according to Schiller himself - "too abstract" and "too serious"? Philip Brady investigates the spark that crossed the gap between the playwright's reflective work about politics and love and Verdi's explosive opera.

8.50 The Unholy Office

Dostoevsky, Dallapiccola, Charles de Coster and Leonardo Sciascia.
