Veteran Hungarian composer Gyorgy Ligeti is Michael Berkeley's guest. This month he returns to London's South
Bank for the second part of Clocks and Clouds, a three-year retrospective of his work. Persecuted by the Nazis as a young man, Ligeti came to international prominence in the 1960s with works such as Apparitions and Lux Aeterna (memorably used in the soundtrack of Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: a Space Odyssey). His musical private passions provide a fascinating insight into the mind of one of Europe's greatest contemporary composers. Executive producer Wendy Thompson

A performance of the new opera by Einojuhani Rautavaara based on the life of Finland's first national writer that proved to be the hit of this year's Savonlinna Opera Festival.
Several of Rautavaara's pieces, like Cantus Arcticus and Angel of Light, are achieving cult status, and in this opera he writes continuously grateful vocal lines. It portrays Kivi's decline into alcoholism and schizophrenia in music of consoling tenderness. Sung in Finnish.
