Cristofori's Florentine Piano
Around 1700 Bartolomeo Cristofori, keeper of instruments forthe Medici family in Florence, had a brilliant idea-take a harpsichord, but instead of plucking the strings with plectra, hit them with little hammers. Catherine Bott meets instrument maker Denzil Wraight, who has recreated one of Cristofori's early pianos. And Ella Sevskaya performs a recital on it.

The third opera in Wagner's Ring Cycle concentrates on Siegfried, the son of brother and sister Siegmund and Sieglinde, whose illicit love affair led to all sorts of trouble in the second opera, Die Walkure. Siegfried has been raised by the dwarf Alberich's brother Mime, who wants to use him to regain the ring from giant-turned-dragon Fafner.
Siegfried kills Fafnerwith his father's sword and takes the ring. The dragon's blood enables Siegfried to understand a woodbird, who warns him of Mime's scheming and then leads him to a maiden asleep on a hilltop, surrounded by fire. This is none otherthan Briinnhilde, the Valkyrie who helped her half-siblings Siegmund and Sieglinde in their affair. She is, therefore, Siegfried's aunt. Nonetheless, Siegfried strides through the fire to claim Brunnhilde as his bride. Presented by Stephanie Hughes.
