5/5. Donald Macleod concludes his look at
Chopin's time at Nohant, the country retreat of his lover George Sand , where over seven summers toward the end of his life he composed much of his finest music. As his relationship with Sand finally comes apart at the seams, he produces his three final masterpieces: the Polonaise-Fantaisie, too modern even for Liszt's ears; the "undervalued masterpiece" that is his Cello Sonata; and perhaps his most influential work, the astonishing Barcarolle.

Sean Rafferty presents a selection of music, with studio guests and news from the arts world.
Presented by Martin Handley. In a concert given at the Brangwyn Hall in Swansea, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales play Dvorak's The Noonday Witch and Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, joined by Alina llbragimova as the soloist in Szymanowski's Violin Concerto No 1. Few symphonies are more demonic in their energy and power than Beethoven's Seventh, though when Weber heard it, he thought Beethoven "fit for the madhouse". It is heard here alongside
Szymanowski's First Violin Concerto and the eerie sound-world of Dvorak's The Noonday Witch.
