David Mellor presents the fifth of eight programmes celebrating musical personalities from the past. A New Gospel of Human Dignity and Love. Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman saw in the Jewish settlement of Palestine not just a refuge from persecution in Europe but also an example for the world. In its image, he created the Palestine Orchestra, now the Israel Philharmonic. Jewish players flocked from Europe's orchestras, as they still do, especially from Russia. Arturo Toscanini conducted the opening concert, in December 1936, the year the orchestra's present music director Zubin Mehta was born. In this programme, he looks back on the orchestra's history and achievements. Huberman himself is heard in the finale of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, and the orchestra plays music including Mahler, Dvorak and Bernstein under conductors Paul Kletzki , Istvan Kertesz , Leonard Bernstein and Zubin Mehta , and the slow movement of Brahms's Piano Concerto No 1 with Artur Rubinstein.

Blues and gospel have been the major formative influences on postwar popular music. Some
12,000 titles were recorded for black audiences in America up to 1942, and, in an unprecedented project, Johnny Parth has ensured that all are now available on CD. In the first of eight programmes examining the many assumptions made about early black music, Paul Oliver talks to Howard Rye , compiler of the discography Blues and Gospel Records 1890-1943; to
Robert Macleod , who plans to transcribe the lyrics of all these records; and to Johnny Parth himself.
