Would classical composers have recognised the pressures and triumphs of their modern counterparts? In spite of phenomena such as MIDI, time code and digital recording, today's composers have the same problem as their forebears - they have to please their patrons, their public and themselves. Tonight's programme celebrates the composer as storyteller, with contemporary writers, directors and composers for theatre, film and television including Barrington Pheloung, John Altman and Dominic Muldowney.
Presented by Neil Brand. Producer Maura Clarke
Daily profiles of contemporary and 20th-century composers form Radio 3's post-concert feature each night this week.
