(1891-1964)
Paul Guinery explores the wit and sophistication of one of this century's most enduring songwriters, a fully trained musician whose ability to match his own words to equally memorable music yielded a vintage harvest.
1: Let's Do It. With recordings of the period, Paul Guinery tells the story of Porter in the 1920s - the "rich boy made good" whose songs took a while to find their niche on Broadway, but who by the end of the decade was the toast of the town.

War, Germany faced economic, architectural and cultural devastation, but within weeks of the end of the war, the beginnings of an extraordinary cultural renaissance emerged. The role of music was crucial. In four programmes this week, Stephen Johnson visits

1: In Thrall to Eros. Although he wrote a wide range of works for the theatre, from light comedies and fairy-tale fantasies to orthodox grand opera, Massenet's main appeal lies in his skill at using music to depict erotic obsession: give him a doomed relationship or a nasty case of sexual dependency, and he was away. Today's programme concentrates on two of his best-known and most popular operas -
Manon and Werther- and also takes a nervous sideways look at La
Navarraise. Presented by Rodney Milnes. Discs
