Michael Berkeley 's guest this week is Sir Richard Eyre , artistic director of the Royal National Theatre in London since 1988. His many successes there have included notable
Shakespeare productions such as Richard III , classics by Ibsen and Tennessee Williams, and new plays by Alan Bleasdale , Tom Stoppard and David Hare. He is a passionate lover of music, and his choices range from Bach, Mozart, Sibelius and Verdi to Miles Davis and Chuck Berry. Executive producer Wendy Thompson Repeated Friday 2pm
The Swiss conductor and string player August Wenzinger died last Christmas, all but forgotten. But without him, the early-music revival would still be in its infancy. Seventy years ago, he was the first to play the viola da gamba like a gambist - not a cellist - and he founded the influential Schola Cantorum in Basle.
Roderick Swanston is joined by Wenzinger's colleagues and students to pay tribute to the man who married musicianship and musicology. Including
Erlebach Suite in C

Before tonight's relay, join the Hagen Quartet on a brief visit to the opera. Their programme includes Puccini's Crisantemi, music he later used in Manon Lescaut , as well as pieces from Verdi's Luisa Miller.
A performance of Puccini's first success, which enters the world of the French demimonde. Manon, a forerunner of the tart with a heart, is manipulated by her scheming brother Lescaut but falls for the dashing
Chevalier des Grieux. She comes to a sticky end in, of all places, the Louisiana desert, in a real tear-jerker of a finale. Glyndebourne's new production, directed by Graham Vick , and conducted by John Eliot
Gardiner, is the first time the opera has been presented there.
