Music for the Stage - 1650s-1680s Roger Savage presents adaptations, reflections and homages. Lully's renown among his contemporaries is illustrated by instrumental adaptations of La Grotte de
Versailles and Cadmus. His death is anticipated in the Fetes Infernale from Alceste, mourned in Marais's Tombeau pour M de Lully, and celebrated in Couperln's Apothéose de Lulli. His impact on French opera is reflected in an excerpt from
Marais's Alcyone, his cross-Channel impact in a scene from Purcell's King Arthur, and his allure for the 20th century in the glow of Strauss's Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme.
Conductors include Jean-Claude
Maigoire, Marc Minkowski , William Christie , Peter Holman and Erich Leinsdorf , and among the soloists are Sarah Cunningham (viola da gamba), Yasanori Imamura (theorbo), and harpsichordists Kenneth Gilbert , William Christie and Christophe Rousset.

Stephen Pratt introduces an edition from the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival.
The main work is Stockhausen's monumental Mantra from 1971, which marked a return to fully notated music, performed by Ellen Corver and Sepp Grotenhuise (pianos) and Jan Panis (sound diffusion). The festival also includes a retrospective of the work of Morton Feldman (1926-87). Omar Ibrahim (bass) and Ensemble Recherché perform pieces from his early and middle years, including the British premiere of The O'Hara Songs and Why Patterns?, a work inspired by Feldman's interest in Asian rugs.
