Elgar and His Muses
With Michael Kennedy. After the death of his wife in 1920, Elgar feared that his musical powers had evaporated. In his later years, it was friends like Laurence Binyon , George Bernard Shaw and Vera Hockman - the last of his female muses - who encouraged him to keep composing.

York Early Music Festival
Mark Rowlinson introduces a final concert from last month's festival.
Today's programme features the Italian vocal and instrumental ensemble Mala Punica making their British concert debut with a sequence of madrigals and dances by the early 15th-century Florentine abbot, diplomat and tenorista Paolo di Marco. Some 40 of his works survive - allegorical madrigals and ballatas, which tell many different stories and carry secret political, philosophical or emotional messages.
Another chance to hear Tuesday's
Prom, which featured a new work for vioin and viola by Piers Hellawell, a centenary performance of Elgar's Enigma Variations, and Rachmaninov's last symphony. Clio Gould (violin), Philip Dukes (viola), BBC Scottish Symphony

Sleeping on a Volcano
Five personal European views on the legacy of 1848. A new map of Europe was drawn up after the events of 1848, as independent regions became nation-states. A century-and-a-half later, it is regionalism, not nationalism, that is testing Europe's borders. As calls for regional independence in Italy grow louder, Dacia Maraini offers a timely review of the building of the state of Italy. Repeat
