Peter Shaffer , one of the most distinguished British playwrights of our time, whose successes include Equus, The Royal Hunt of the Sun and Amadeus. His choices focus on the stage and include duets from Verdi's Otello and Rossini's La Cenerentola, and Sir John Gielgud reading the deposition scene from Shakespeare's Richard II. But there is also instrumental music by Mozart and Mendelssohn, a Handel birthday ode sung by Alfred Deller , and an excerpt from Britten's Holy Sonnets of John Donne.

Jeremy Nicholas ends his assessment of pianist Gyorgy Cziffra , who escaped from Hungary in 1956. Already in his mid-30s but unknown in the west, he quickly established himself as one of the foremost virtuosos of the day, although tragedy marred his final years. With contributions from Gordon Fergus-Thompson, Michael Glover , Charles Hopkin and Bryce Morrison , he examines Cziffra's legacy, both as artist and philanthropist. Including Debussy Claire de Lune

Claude Rawson explores the strange history of cannibalism in western literature.
