Beggars, Ballads and a Brouhaha
John Gay 's Beggar's Opera of 1728 celebrates 18th-century London street life, with beggars, cut-throats, thieves and prostitutes singing the popular ballads of the day. Lucie Skeaping looks at its inspiration, background and impact as a welcome and very British antidote to the fashionable Italian opera of the day, with all its excesses, pretensions and classical allusions.
Charles Hazlewood sheds new light on Robert Schumann 's Symphony No 4 in D minor in its original version of 1841. He questions the opinion that Schumann was not a good orchestrator and explores the innovative way in which the composer shaped the work into a single span of invention. The performances are provided by the BBCSSO, conducted by Douglas Boyd.

Live from the Met: Der Rosenkavalier
