With Donald Macleod and Roger Nichols. Henri Dutilleux once remarked "le travail fortifie" work makes you stronger. That observation is appropriate for a composer who is absolutely committed to the craft of writing music; his determination to "write music, not manifestos" is indicative of his desire not to involve himself in the politics of music. But, unusually, his cello concerto is one example of a work commissioned by the French government - to commemorate the centenary of Baudelaire's death. It is the main work in today's programme.
