A Lighthouse and a Seagull
Shortly before Sviatoslav Richter 's death, Russian pianist Vladimir Viardo was in Paris and heard someone practising Schubert in the room above him. He knew it must be his old friend and mentor Richter.
Brought together through their teachers, Richter and Viardo's bond survived emigration to France and America. Now Viardo remembers
Richter the musician, who will always be a beacon for others to aim at, and Slava the man, who suffered grievous loss under Stalin but had a childlike ability to take off into realms of humour, fantasy and poetry.

Pat Metheny is not only a very popular guitarist, he is also one of the great improvisers in jazz and a prolific composer. In this five-part series, he talks to Ian Carr about his career, recalling first his upbringing in America around Kansas City.
Friendship with Jaco Pastorius led to their playing with pianist Paul Bley , but Metheny's big break came when vibraphonist Gary Burton decided to turn his quartet into a quintet by including him.
