Soprano Ileana Cotrubas talks to Joan Bakewell about her career on the concert platform and her commitment to singing lieder and oratorios, including Wolf's Italian Songbook and Brahms's German Requiem.
The great playwright George Bernard Shaw had a second career as Como di Bassetto, one of the most outspoken music critics of his day. His reviews were brilliant and included biting comments on contemporary art and society. He disliked the music of Brahms but was enthusiastic about Mozart and, especially, Wagner. But he took a poor performance as a personal insult and made many enemies.

Concluding the series in which
Rodney Milnes looks at same-sex relationships in opera.
Breaking Cover. After the Oscar Wilde scandal, homosexuality became something definable, something that could be categorised - though some would say it was often categorised in narrow, physical terms rather than being understood in a wider emotional context. Either way, in the 20th century homosexual feeling became a subject to be treated openly, even in opera - sometimes seriously, sometimes in terms of camp stereotypes. Featuring music by Strauss, Britten, Janacek and Walton.

Pollock was not aware of being an "abstract expressionist", a category invented by critic Clement Greenberg. Some would say, though, that
Greenberg actually tried to influence Pollock's work. In this fourth programme, Pollock biographer Deborah Solomon and art critic
Richard Cork conduct a close examination of this collaboration.
Chris de Souza introduces the second of four concerts recorded last month at the Royal Academy of Music in London, in which Bach's

With canons from The Musical Offering and from the Goldberg Variations.
